It's an RJ175, which is basically flagship F for AA in CLE  ;D
Actually a great plane for F with 5 pax due to 1-2 configuration. But renting a car in MIA is never fun.
AA is still an option for you? ::)
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

5 pax, staying in BH.

CLE-MIA AA F, 15K Avios (Sitting on a bunch from AMEX 40% and Iberia, effectively 10.7K with 40% bonus. Only $5.60 to cancel.)
CLE-FLL UA Y+, 10.5K UA miles (Probably get 2/5 upgraded for free...which isn't very useful. Best service in case of irrops due to GS. Free cancellation.)
CLE-FLL B6 Y, 5.7K B6 points (Still sitting on a bunch of points from pointmatch)
if  for you, and you dont want to actually get there, then book the AA. otherwise, for such a short flight, and in flight entertainment and better service, not to mention cheaper, i'd go b6

Won't have Mosaic next year, so no EMS. Plus most EMS doesn't work with carseats.
Why doesn't EMS work with car seats?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I don't see the need for F on a regular 1.5 hr flight.

You taking a Concord for CLE-MIA? It's a 3 hour flight...

You can't redeem for EMS with points at time of booking?
IME carseats work fine just not in Bulkheads.

Can't fly those over populated areas.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

They're being retrofitted the airbag seatbelts. Had to move last time.

They fly to 2 cities from CLE and I fly them maybe once or twice per year. Better places for the MS than more B6 points when I'm already sitting on more points than I can use.

Ouch. What's the purpose of that? 5oo much space from seat in front to be safe otherwise?
