I'm writing to see if anyone (including the AA rep here on MP) has any recent information on whether the Executive Platinum challenge exists today. My family relative is a UA/CO 1K and is looking to move over to AA (hit 100k miles already this year and still has more flying to do). A phone call to AA told me that the PLT challenge is as high as it gets, although try writing an email and see if someone will make an exception. I've written an email to the general AA contact and was told to contact the AAdvantage program. Since my latest email to AAdvantage, I have yet to receive a response. Anyone know if the AA Exec Plat desk make case by case exceptions? If so, what's the best communication method to in touch with AA? Any information would be nice, thanks!
