Just thought I'd see what you all think about this. I know EQMs are a touchy subject, so please be nice and remember that we're all friends here! AA 945 DFW-SCL 7 Dec 9:45pm scheduled departure was delayed for one reason by 1.5 hours-ish and then for another reason for another 2-hours-ish, then the plane was taken out of service and other equipment was not available until the next day. They gave us vouchers for either the Grand Hyatt DFW or some other hotel off-site (obviously I scored the Grand Hyatt), a $7 food voucher, which is a bit pithy but more than nothing, and told us to be back at 8am the next morning for 9am departure. Flight delayed until 11:45am for yet another reason, but we took off and arrived safely with an outstanding crew (hard to find on that route). The day after the flight an email arrived apologizing for the flight delay and telling us that 15,000 bonus miles had been deposited to our accounts. Overall, AA did everything they had to do for us, and I really wasn't all that put out, but I wrote to CS and asked, very nicely, if they would consider converting the 15,000 bonus miles to 10,000 EQMs, since that's what I'm short to hit EXP. No response yet. If it doesn't happen I won't be crushed, but you can't get something if you don't ask for it, right? What do you think they'll do?
