HSBC announced today that they are again offering free American Five-Star service for their Premier Banking customers this festive season. I use this service as often as possible when it's free (and am willing to pay for it some of the time, too!). I've already made three bookings for two adults with the service for this Christmas - a $600 value! If you have a Premier account at HSBC and are flying AA to one of their focus airports, it's worth trying. While HSBC's email only lists JFK, MIA and LAX, I suspect that is a product of cut-and-paste from last Christmas, when those were the only fields that offered the service. Five-Star service is offered at over a dozen domestically any abroad. My detailed report on the benefits of AA Five-Star service can be found here: http://bit.ly/oySQs7 Dear NYBanker: From November 15, 2011 through January 15, 2012, receive American Airlines® Five Star ServiceTM compliments of HSBC Premier when you fly into and out of New York Kennedy International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport or Miami International Airport.
