AA Gold Status for $749
« on: November 16, 2016, 03:41:42 PM »
Is it worth it to buy Gold status for $749?
I use avios to book often but never get upgrades... is this a smart way to do so?

Rip off.
AA doesn't upgrade award tickets. And you need to pay to upgrade paid tickets except short-hauls that usually don't have first class.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

AA Gold is really silver status. Not worth much.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

They announced they'll upgrade EXP award tickets "sometime in 2017"
