    No I am against any type of ATI. Have you seen any good things come out from the AA one other than the FLY ON bonus on AA flights?

    you think most of JMB elites would fly on AA? It's a nice to have bonus but I would rather have my UGPs back and get no bonus

    Well if they do they would be happy. Now that upgrades are gone, will you still push for Crystal or will you start flying ANA?

    I probably would still push for crystal this year since i am already half way there with my CTS trip in Jan. Only need 2x TYO-OKA and 2x HND-ISG on top of my regular trips to get me there. I guess 50% bonus worths ~40,000 yen (actually it's less than that if you consider the marginal cost...I was gonna go to OKA anyway so it's just 2 man extra :p)

    And if they ever allow AA and BA people to upgrade on JAL flights, I will jump ship and earn those dirt cheap miles on them instead :eek: I can't believe how fast you can get those BA miles. I got some easy double miles from online iPhone shopping and double dip that with JAL USA Card too :p

    Could have gotten even more if I charged that to my BA card. This just show how dirt cheap their miles are and why I don't like ATI if they get reciprocal FFP benefits :p

    One thing I wish to get from AA ATI is a shopping mile program in the US...they have those in Japan but not here :( They can leverage AA's existing program and rebrand it :p
