It's commonplace and often fully endorsed by the carrier.
I personally knew an AA retiree from west Florida, whose flight privilege was taken away because this person had abused the non-rev system. While most non-rev travellers are fine and would never thought about the word of 'abuse' the system. But there were few people got caught. Believe in me, the said person did not gain anything monetary wise, just flew too much (in the said person's own word), for personal pleasure. There could be something else I was not told. But from what I heard from this said person, that was why I would like to know what is the fine line between abuse the non-rev system and to be nice to family members.
Again, complete nonsense; and as someone who has had AA nonrev privileges for going on forty years I'd go as far as to say your AA retiree friend lied to you outright or withheld part of the story. There is no such thing, and has never been such a thing, as someone losing nonrev benefits for 'flying too much' if rules are otherwise not broken. I can attest to that personally.
Which part is 'nonsense'? Someone got travel privilege revoked? Or this person told me lies? And if so, what is your prove?
Of course this person might not tell me the whole story, but without prove, I can only take this person's word in face value, then warn the reader that, I state, there could be something else I was not told, in my post. So is that nonsense? or you would rather me to write to AA HR to ask for the old case file?
I have admitted that this was a Chinese whisper, thus made the remark that there might be information missing. I don't see how that could be nonsense. If you were accusing my point being nonsense, the reality is that you don't know how this said person's travel privilege got revoked neither, so how can you attest for people you don't know and the fact you don't know?
