Yeah, I knew about that upgrade fee- I think that's ridiculous. It's like my AAdvantage miles on American: AA
won't let me use them to fly to Anchorage (which is why I switched to OnePass), so why was I collecting them in the first place? The published reward for DFW
is 25000 miles; for two summers in a row, they have told me that I wasn't planning ahead enough to get a "Plan AheAAd" reward.
HELLO, FREAKS, THIS IS
JANUARY!!! I really get riled up on this one, sorry. If four months isn't enough advanced notice for AA
to use my miles two years in a row, I'll take my business elsewhere.
Besides, they aborted the MRTC feature anyway- just another reason to jump off the AA
Not to mention the time they took my first class upgrade away from me, AFTER they had awarded it to me! WITH 30,000 of my miles, that they FORGOT to refund to my account! Ugh!
But yeah, I think $450 is a rip off to upgrade. If you'd wanted to pay for it, you'd have bought it, eh?
