    System-wide or mileage, yes. Stickers, no.

    If you have some basic info., it's not too hard to gift miles or a SWU. I did it for a friend flying ORD-NRT-DFW last Nov. Called AA with the days he was flying (didn't know the PNR) and with his name and routing, the EXP AAgent found his record and applied the SWUs. Worked like a charm and they were quite surprised to get a boarding pass with a J seat assignment (vs. the seat they originally had in row 33!)
