    Looks like they've kissed and made up. ;)

    It's bAAck! I, for one, and quite happy about this.

    The full story is HERE.

    (Some day I'll get all techie and figure out how to make the word "here" the actual link like all of you, but until then my posts to links are ugly.)

    A nice development from AA and AW to be sure. Was annoying when they dropped access.

    Highlight the word HERE, then click the "chain link" icon from the toolbar above if you're posting in a browser. It's a tad more complicated from a mobile device.

    I got an email from AW. The news is all over the forums, and yes it is very good news!

    Not to be cynical, I suspect it's "kissed and paid up."

    I don't belong to any miles/points/awards management website. Would this be a good one to use?

    Yes! It's the only one I'll use, because it will automatically import your travel plans linked to your accounts (hotel stays, flights, etc.) and function as a kind of TripIt site, too. Maybe there are others out there that do all that, too, but I like AW.

    I wonder how much longer frequent flyers will need to wait before we can again track our American Airlines AAdvantage miles using www.traxo.com?

    I'm guessing if United was added back you'd see that in the United forum. :)

    I wonder if Crandall had something to do with it after participating in the travel summit earlier this year ... maybe some friendly nudging by Randy & company! ;)

    No experience with them. If anyone is in a position to compare them to AwardWallet, I would be interested in a review.

    Unlike AwardWallet, Traxo is somewhat like Klout .... but your Traxo score is based on your travel experience & plans. So the more travel history/loyalty programs/plans you have, the higher the score will be.

    Just as soon as Traxo agrees to pay I'm sure it can happen.

    Lots of people are super-excited about this, and justifiably so. But it seems no one else asked the deeper question. It turns out that this was all about the money. AwardWallet agreed to pay and they got access back. I have no idea how much money was involved and I assume it isn't a ton, but for a company which lives on thin margins in the freemium model that's a bit concerning to me.

    I know both pretty well. Traxo is much more like TripIt for aggregation/planning plus account tracking. AwardWallet is only about the tracking.

    Sortof. They're a planning/aggregating service but they have a whole section about loyalty account balances, too.

    I think it's just a matter of time before all companies follow AA footsteps. They have more to gain than to loose with this, and there is nothing wrong with their policy, since the member should authorize it!

    Well if they're getting paid for the data, why wouldn't they? Not much "loss" there. ;)

    Exactly what I meant, if they don't allow anymore they will loose the money they are getting paid, so again they have more to gain than to loose with this. :D

    So AA is back on AW, and initially AW pulled in my itineraries on AA. They have disappeared, and AW customer service says, "we know," and nothing more. Has anyone heard of this being discontinued for AA flights?
