I know there's a core group of AA flyers that aren't happy welcoming those of us that jumped ship from UA. I understand your frustration. I just received this e mail from AA regarding my status match: Welcome to American Airlines AAdvantage Platinum® membership! Your new card will arrive by mail in just a few weeks, but in the meantime I want to express my appreciation for your business. We are delighted to recognize you at this elite level and will work hard to ensure your loyalty is rewarded. Along with your membership comes a range of benefits designed to make your travel more enjoyable. We invite you to review your Benefits Guide online at aa.com/aadvantageplatinum for information to help you make the most of your membership. As one of our valued elite members, you are especially important to us. Thank you for your support of American Airlines and the AAdvantage® program. Yours truly, Suzanne L. Rubin President AAdvantage® Loyalty Program It's nice to be welcomed to this tribe. Anyone else?
