Is it true that you can only upgrade domestic on AA by using 500 mike upgrades? If you don’t have them you can buy them at $80 per? I’ve been delta platinum and now AA. This is insane..

Yep! Welcome to 2002

Yes that's how it works unless you're Platinum Pro or Exec Plat, in which cases no upgrade vouchers are needed

Free for Exec Plat. All others earn then after so many EQM. Or you can buy them for $$$ or miles, although at much less than $80 per

Yeah - it’s a measure they take to spread out upgrades more among lower-tier elites, I don’t think the $80 charge is a big revenue generator for them

I’ve been delta platinum for 6 years so I wouldn’t know. Thank you all!

Pretty sure they’re $40 each. But as stated above, EP and Plat Pro don’t require them.

Status match

SM1- I now have AA platinum. Is that what you are suggesting? I will probably be switching back to Delta.

My SO’s family invited me on a European vacation and I’m going. However, I am terrified of telling my mother. My parents aren’t the most financially stable. My mom has a lot of regret about how her life turned out and often exhibits a lot of toxic jealousy toward people with more money than them. She especially is jealous of how others get to travel. I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)
