I figured I would try for the 50% bonus on a AA flight as a US AIrways Elite Gold to see if this worked or if I should stay clear. In the past, when I was flying United and Continental while it merged, it was terrible for me, lost luggage, lost privileges, messed up tickets, etc. So, I wanted to see if there was good news or bad news. The good news is that AA personnel were very polite. But....at the moment, my advice would be to go over everything with them, possibly a few times, because there is nothing that seems to happen automatically, you have to stop, ask, and then ask again specifically about features. For example, I book the ticket, entering in the US Airways number. I go back, it's not there. I have to call it in. They are very polite, everything is good to go. When I arrive, they see the number, but I still have to show my Gold card for them to accept the suitcase as free, otherwise they wanted to charge for it. Then, they issue my ticket....I walk away....hmmm....it doesn't say anything except Group 4 on it. That doesn't sound good. Sure enough, the security says this is not preferred, go to the regular line. Uh, no. I go back, I have them fix it to a Preferred line. OK, go through security. I sit down, look up my seat, it's alllllll the way in the back. Hmmmm... I go and ask, they tell me Elites don't get Preferred seats (I'm not asking for FC, just the slightly bigger seats - Economy Plus?). I go back, I look it up, it says we do get those. I go back. they tell me sorry, it's too late, you are stuck with these. Ah well. So, eventually things were working, even getting in line,they call AA status people, and so I go to the counter and ask which group do I match it only says Preferred on the ticket. Oh yeah, she says, I forgot, at this point the line is continuing so I just get in and get to my seat. Overall, a nice flight, and I really liked the plane as it had video for every seat, along with music and felt pretty new.....but now I know and would advise everyone else as well....check everything, check it again, check it again. It's new and it is not integrated, but at least AA personnel were very friendly and helpful.
