:) book a backup that can be cancelled. Or domestic with a sw backup is doable. Or one way from home with refundable hotel reservation

Ah, but maybe it would b a good idea for the community to bait aa and sue them multiple times to get them to be less aggressive?

What's the basis for the suit? They're allowed to investigate and they can close accounts for any reason, including suspected abuse.

I doubt it's that simple even though they may claim that in t&c. Another option is getting media coverage.

Friend got an email from corporate security, login is active miles are there, does this mean anything?
when you get the dreaded email, you'll be able to access your account & the miles will still be there (you'll even be able to book an award flight, but it won't ticket) . after you get the 2nd email, you won't be able to login.

Does the AA audit team make a issue if a account books it first ticket for a name different then the name on AA account, or they only catch on and make issues after multiple different ticket under different names?

there is no exact science how they catch you.. I am sure IP address, heavy use on (expensive) Cathay routes for example would be flagged...

Their team is basically small compare to the amount of awards booked with them, but it's not worth trying them, I'm curious why this thread wasn't merged yet with the previous one

i'm really confused by all these threads. and not just AA, but any other frequent flyer program. how would they be able to distinguish between someone who sells miles, vs a legitimate use of one booking flights for friends or family?

i mean i recently invited friends from Israel to join us for a trip to Asia and got them tickets using my AA miles. or i often book tickets for my in laws to visit us in ny. as far as i know this is perfectly allowed. but again, how can this be distinguished from an unlawful activity i don't understand.

A bit of brains - IP addresses, CC match, volume of ticket for other names, how its was booked etc

i book tickets from different IP addresses, whether its my work, or home, or my parents house, or when im traveling, which is quite a bit.
now, granted, i believe i always use my CC as i purchase the tickets, but sometime my wife will book tickets for her parents and will use her CC, and her last name is different than mine.
and thinking about it, i probably booked only few tickets for myself, mostly its my family, so volume means nothing. most business travelers i know utilize miles to book tickets for family members.

Leave it up to them. I found with AA 97% of the shut downs were indeed accounts that which violated the T&C.

I'd say they're not wrong in 99.99% of the shutdowns.
