    Might be nice for all if you could post some additional information or the content of the email (I'm assuming) you received outlining the promotion. I'm not LAX-based, but I'm curious and I'm sure others are as well.

    I could really use that for the LAX-IAH flight to go visit my pops...I do go back and forth between LAX and NYC so let's see if I get the e-mail *fingers crossed*

    It's a discount code, not an award and books into O fare class. Should earn miles!

    You're NYC based aren't you? As far as I can tell this offer is only going to EXPs based in LAX or one of the 9 new destinations on AE from LAX. :(

    Well I'm based in both actually. Both of my LAX and NYC addresses are registered with AA and as I'm on the transcons between JFK and LAX every month...it's not as if AA doesn't have the paper trail to see my situation.

    I suppose there is still hope but I doubt AA is taking the time to go through the accounts to figure out who get them and who doesn't. I suppose there is still a chance though. Good luck!

    Got the offer. Booked a trip LAX-IAH for June 4-6. Had to work dates until this set worked. (wanted to leave Sat, return Sun or Mon).

    LAX-IAH have FC, is the furthest & I used to live in Texas. (Austin). Also registered for the double miles promo.

    Only drawback is the car rental taxes/fees are more than my base price. Oh well, total for 2 days w/Hertz is about $60. (using a $10/day off coupon).

    $5ai for air that earns miles. Can't beat that!

    If you see it on EF, then call AA.com and have them help you book it. I had the same issue. The O fares were not showing up on AA.com, possibly because they weren't the lowest fares.

    Turns out if you click on the link in the email with the promo code, it's easy.

    It takes you too "search by price" as opposed to "price and schedule" which wasn't working well.
