Another Dumb Move by AA?
« on: October 03, 2018, 01:13:34 PM »
It seems that AA is not going to book economy class passengers on other airlines in the event of IRROPS.

Ridiculous. Now we just wait for the other two to follow suit.

? I don't see how this is #FakeNews? Regular, non elite Economy class passengers are not reaccomodated on other airlines. That's exactly what I wrote and that is a huge deal.

Maybe you didn’t read the article I linked.

“American’s agents are allowed to reaccommodate anyone on joint venture partners, oneworld partners, and codeshares on non-oneworld partners in that order of preference.  So if you hear people saying that American won’t allow reaccommodation on “other airlines,” it only refers to those who are not partners.  (That is also why this has much less of an impact on international travel where partners are more plentiful.)”

But not Delta or United. That's what counts, definitely domestically. This is a big move, and counts as a typical bad AA move.

@Dan No comment? You're usually the first to talk about these type of issues. I'll be Dan (no pun intended) Lekaf Zchus that you're traveling or something.

Wasn't it Delta that started this a couple of years ago saying they wouldn't accommodate AA due to AA's lousy performance and low compensation for the seats?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Since the beginning of the year, AA does reaccomodate on Delta, too, but now they do not allow non elite economy passengers to be reaccomodated on Delta or United.

Yeah I'm basically done with American for this and other reasons. Once I spend my miles (not so many), and I'll probably dump the credit card.
