I am trying to use AA miles to get to Thailand from US. I call advantage desk and they say there are no available seats in Feb, March, April or even later?!?! Does anyone know how I can use points on another companion airline or something??? First time trying to book international and this is so far a nightmare. Thanks in advance.

AA.com (and/or the AAdvantage reps) would show you availability on AA partners as well as AA metal. If there’s no availability there’s no availability, unfortunately.

These aren’t CC points so there’s no opportunity to be creative here.

How many AA miles do you have? Want coach or business seat? AA does not fly to Bangkok. You have to look at one world alliance airlines such Japan airlines, Cathay Pacific, etc

It’s not impossible, but this is a tall order. The miles game is a tough one to play and Thailand on AA miles poses a particularly high degree of difficulty. You should look at routing yourself through DOH, HKG, or HND/NRT and try out different cities besides BKK. For example, lots of flights from these cities to KUL, where you could position yourself and buy a separate RT ticket to BKK or wherever

I work for a late stage(ipo) start up, earlier this year we were acquired & since then they got rid of our yearly bonuses and gave us an ESOP grant.
2 RIFs later we are almost bare bones. Since we are coming up on our usual yearly evaluations many of us assumed (with multiple conversation from our managers) that pay raises and promotions were due.
In a recent All hands we found out that this year there will be no pay raises nor promotions based off merit. Is it time to jump ship?
