Maybe a stupid question, but if I book a ticket on AA for my girlfriend using my account/AAdvantage number, will she get the same upgrade priority I do?

No, the name has to match the aadvantage number, you can't book for another person.

If you are traveling with her on the same itinerary, yes. Otherwise, no

DD response needd clarifiction: - Yes, you can book for her using your points - No, she will not get your priority traveling alone - Yes, if you travel together on the same PNR, she gets to share your priority - Yes, if she travels with you on a different PNR but you contact the airlines to link them, she can upgrade with you.

TIL you could link rez after booking. Thanks

Arrow Icon

I don't think you can link after booking. I've tried this a bunch of times

Arrow Icon

You can absolutely link res. Trick is to get an AA res agent and not a former US agent.

If you buy her ticket and travel together, same priority as your companion. If a mileage ticket, can't upgrade her.

Arrow Icon

Also if you link people your combined upgrade priority drops... pretty dramatically IIRC. Anyone?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
