"Hereís what Iíve been told through official sources"

Interesting, in his first post he wrote "With that in mind, itís my understanding that AAdvantage award changes post-devaluation will work similarly to when AAdvantage and Dividend Miles integrated."

And then he reached out to "his sources" at aa and said that it was confirmed. I assume(d) that those are real sources.

I'm assuming you know what they say when you assume, right?

He won't just give out his sources by name and I find it completely reasonable for him to have sources at aa so if he says he reached out to them and dedicated an entire post to that idea, I think it's believable.

You don't think he has sources and could have confirmed that?

I wouldn't be surprised if he's wrong, it won't be the first time he's been wrong with AA Awards.

DL vs. AZ
30k/62.5k + YQ vs. 25k/40k + YQ
Working website vs. Dysfunctional website.
Normal reps vs. Downsyndrome reps.

Now you decide for yourself  :P
How much YQ (or other bogus charges) would booking this itinerary on AZ cost me?

DL is 125k + $295.
AZ is 80k + ??
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
