hello all,

I tried AA customer service and got nowhere.


Acording to AA.com in order to upgrade using your miles you must also submit a non refundable co-pay??

Am I just miss reading this?

Depends if you are flying international or not. If you are you have to pay, the rate varies according to how far you try to upgrade before you travel.

If you are flying within the US you don't have to pay, you just use your upgrades and 'join the line', your place in this line will depend upon your elite status.

Go to www.flyertalk.com to get more info.

Hope this helps a little - there are others on A.net who know far more about this than I do.

Quoting Gulfstream650 (Reply 1):
Depends if you are flying international or not. If you are you have to pay, the rate varies according to how far you try to upgrade before you travel.

If you are flying within the US you don't have to pay, you just use your upgrades and 'join the line', your place in this line will depend upon your elite status

In fact, if you're flying high yield economy fares (B and Y) the copay isn't required but for discount economy fares, yes, you need a copay.

From C to F the copay isn't required.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
