What is the rough monetary equivalent of 25,000 American Airlines miles? Trying to get an understanding so I have a fair ask in my complaint letter

Actual? About $300-350. Most airlines inflate their points value though so can be better to ask for e-voucher (e.g. UA values their miles at 2 cents per point when giving goodwill which is well above actual worth)

like

Use the thepointsguy.com for valuation. I think they are about 1 cent. Airlines are more opt to give you points or vouchers than cold hard cash.

Or if someone can advise: are airlines more willing to give cash (reimbursement), miles, or flight vouchers when dealing with customer complaints that are the airlines fault?

C1 Keep in mind that TPG tends to have bloated valuations. You’re better off aggregating TPG with Lucky of OMAAT and Gary Leff of VFTW

D1 I’m honestly not sure what any of that means but I went ahead and asked for a voucher.

AA miles are worth about 1.5 cents per mile

You may be better off asking regarding the specific issue and how many points/$ others have received.

It’s a very convoluted tale of delays, cancellations, diversions, missed rental cars, no space in the airline’s lounge, and rocking chair business calls. I asked for a $600 voucher so we’ll see 🤷🏻‍♂️
