    There are two reports on FT that AA is "no longer doing status matches" as of Mar 23. This info has stopped posting on two major status matching threads over there. :eek: Can anyone here (hopefully) report that they are still getting matched?

    Even if this is true, which it probably is (gross speculation), I would expect AA and others to re-open some sort of limited time match program early next year when the UA/CO integration is complete. It would seem like a mistake not to, as there will be people looking to jump ship from *A.

    Many of those people (I am on the fence) would be persuaded more easily if they could enjoy status from day 1 in the new alliance. FWIW, I would not leave *A without a full match to whatever level I end up at, because a potentially devalued 1P/1K is worth a lot more in 2012 than the middle seats on an MD-80 that AA offers to plebes.

    Just to clarify, by status matching, are you referring to the challenge?

    If not, then I wasn't aware that AA actually did any status matching in the first place.

    Since FT and MP seem cordial lets post the link so we can see what FT says.

    I haven't seen any other posts with an FT link and I didn't want to be the first :eek: In the first post of the thread, I put in a quote that will enable a search, as mrpickles (great handle :D) suggests.

    mrpickles: A true AA FT'er!! That said the links are nice too, (thanks dayone) especially since at least one of the two cited claims was in MilesBuzz and not the AA forum where I did a (somewhat cursory) look.

    Yes, I guess I should have noted that. And the one in the MilesBuzz is the one with more info. This morning someone posted that just yesterday he was asked for a copy of his card (having sent in a request email on Mar 19), so all may not be lost.

    Just as a quick update, the individual who started the EXP status challenge/matching post on FT as well as some knowledgable posters have updated as of this AM that the offer is currently dead. Considering that nothing was ever officially issued and this activity was all word of mouth, take that for what it's worth. Seems like the general consensus is "no mas" for now.
