    Hi all,

    I have a multi-city trip coming up, and one of the segments is operated by AS, though it is an AA-codeshared flight (with an AA flight number on my PNR).

    I was wondering whether I could list myself for standby, or even paying $75 for SDC, to a flight that is operated by AA. Same exact route, just changing metals. Would this be possible?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, you can't switch airlines via SDC or standby. Not even if it's an AA codeshare to AA metal.

    I actually seem to recall that Mike Reed relayed that you can't even standby for earlier AS flights as an AA elite, but could be wrong...

    Good news! If you are an eligible customer for AA standby, you may standby for AA prime flights.

    What is an AA prime flight? A flight on AA metal?
