I needed to find a way to and from California. our 5 week summer trip to the Pacific
I used American Airlines miles to fly to Tonga and home from Vanuatu. Those flights started and ended in California. Since we live in NYC and AA didn’t have saver awards from NY-LA and SF-NY, I had to look at other options or I would’ve had to pay around 30,000 miles per person each way.

American Airlines Gold status is the lowest tier of status and it doesn’t really offer a ton of benefits. However it does allow for one free checked bag and priority boarding.

A man from Buffalo, NY had to cancel his flight with American Airlines when he got sick and was told that he’d have to pay a $200 change fee.
When he went to rebook a month later, he asked if the fee could be waived since he had gotten sick. Rather than just write the letter and send in a doctor’s not, he decided to “
get a little creative with it“. Continue reading American Airlines Waives $200 Cancellation Fee Due To Witty Letter →
