For any AA platinum members - is it worth it? Flying from DCA to ORD. Thinking about the status challenge but $500 for plat challenge + plat now is steep. Sick of united silver.

Do the status match through PwC. AA will match your United status.

The most important thing is your home airport OP. I'm ExecPlat out of DFW, so it's pretty worthless aside from the higher mile earning rate.

Don't worry. You won't get upgraded on much/any at Platinum.

I paid 200 for challenge plat but don't get status until I win. Pretty much regretting that but I was so sick of being a peasant again. Started in September have traveled pretty much the entire time. Just barely missed qualification EOY and it all reset jan 1. Despite 5 months of consistent travel, I have no status on airlines

I only have United silver, I don't think it's worth it. How often do AA golds get upgraded on ~600 mi flights? I can get Econ+ on most united flights when I check in as a silver.

You'll get economy plus seating equivalent (assuming it's not already taken). You have to accrue 500-mile upgrade segments that you will 'spend' to try to get into first - if you're flying a 600 mile flight it would take 2 to upgrade. You earn 4 every 12,500 miles flown

There has to be a free status challenge you can do...

Try calling them and see if they will let you use PwC status match for the challenge to platinum

Nvm just realized it's not a challenge but rather a pay for status

So fucking mad every time I board behind the casual traveler

I tell myself that I've come to terms with my husband not being very thoughtful or helpful around the house. But I was sick last weekend and he didn't even unload the dishwasher or put away the laundry I'd already done, and when I asked him to help me by getting me drinks and stuff, he would tell me 'in a minute' because he was on his phone, and then he'd get to it eventually or forget. It's like, can you pretend to care just a little?
