    Hi guys,

    I believe I already know the answer, and I believe it is a big "NO", but is worth to ask. I booked a flight through AA, is a US flight CLT-LGA roundtrip (not that that would change my question, just giving more information away). The question is, I have my AA number there (no status at all, which means, pay for everything and no benefits!) and I found that my MVP with Alaska could give me some perks with AA (which should be extended due to the merge to US?), but for that I would need the MVP card in the reservation, right? If so, is there any possible way to change that in the reservation? Another question that I have is, why is US charging 49 bucks for regular seats in the front of the airplane for no status passengers?

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: I believe I extended myself a little..

    The AS perks don't cross over to the US-operated flights so there's no point in making that change.

    And, yes, US charges extra for seats at the front of the plane, even without extra leg-room. AA does, too. And CO used to before they put E+ in their planes. Why? Because some will pay for it.
