    Got this email this morning - first 20,000 AA signups get 1,000 miles each:

    EDIT: Looks like you can go through multiple times, and get at least one hit for AA and one for BA, with 1,000 points each.

    Looks like you can play again and again, but I'd encourage you to start soon. They say they're giving 1000 AA miles to the first 20,000 registrants, and as far as I can tell, I got the 1000 for each of the four accounts in my family, so they aren't out yet.

    I just did it and just received an e-mail saying that I'd get 1000 miles even though I was #XXX out of 27,000.... maybe people are playing again and again.

    Huh - I didn't see the total number there, but also, not all of the 27,000 had to choose AA as their favorite carrier, so there could easily still be fewer than 20,000 AA entries.

    Looks like you should get this, in a follow up email:

    I played earlier today and no email. Sad face. I tend to get AA emails much later than others though.

    folex386 -

    Looking at all four of my emails, none have a position number.

    What airline did you choose on the way in?

    Their servers are getting hammered. Painfully slow, but working my way through the game. Not sure if I will have the patience to do this for all 4 family members.

    Don't forget to pay close attention to the highlighted items that show briefly at the start of each round. That's where you need to click.

    5 in the first round, and 4 in each of the next two.

    That's not good. Maybe everyone is hitting their Monday morning emails hard.

    I am trying to go back and have submitted the form several times. Now I am getting a whole page full of errors. Hopefully the next thing I see will be success.

    Maybe start over? Have you entered your AA number yet?

    It was really slow, but I finally made it to the last screen where you can share it to others. I was number 7000 something. Easy 1,000 miles. Thanks!

    Still getting errors, but on a brighter note, when I started over I went through it ninja-quick and when I got to the registration screen it said my score was currently #1 out of 7673 participants. Now if only I could get through the registration. Maybe a different browser will do the trick.

    I was able to run through (twice...) -- at about 10.8K now -- but after I "register" at the end, nothing happens...so not sure that it really went through or not. Sigh...:eek:

    I did it again with my BA number. I hope I get both AA miles and Avios. :)

    Interesting - did it claim that BA was also giving out something like 1000 miles to the first 20,000 entries?

    Yes, it says the same thing. Both my AA and BA entries went through and I received two emails, one with AA on top and the other with BA.

    Because it applies to BA as well, I linked this thread and posted this in the BA forum. :)

    Looking good. 4000 AA miles and 4000 BA miles for my family - when they post.

    My last two BA entries aren't really completing - no questions about sending email to friends, and no numbers for what position I'm in. Last I saw was about 11,700.
