What's the best use of these 500 miles upgrades in AA. I tried using it so many times but never got upgraded. I now have 20 left, do they ever expire?

The only time I was able to use mine was when I was going to places people didn’t really go for work. (Like Albuquerque lol)

They do not expire. Usually they will clear on weekend travel or off peak. If you ever get to EXP or Plat Pro you will also need them to upgrade a companion if you’re traveling with them.

As C1 mentioned, I found that they came in handy when I was EXP last year and my wife could upgrade with me

Try and get flights on E175s and CRJ 900s. The FC to coach ratio favors gold and plat upgrades

Hey.. i go to ABQ for work 😑

Christmas! Food was the only thing to look forward to on some days. Tbh, found the most chill client there, so I shouldn’t be complaining.
Lived out of the Hyatt in DT, found out that i was competing (and losing) to Schwarzenegger for presidential suite upgrades. Ran into him few times. Chill old dude
