My dad has 500K miles sitting in his AA account that he says he never plans to use, as he is now a *A guy. I asked him if I could have it, and I plan to use his miles to book me some award tickets, but I also noticed that you can "share" AA miles. I had a few questions if someone knows the answer? 1. The site says you can transfer/receive 100K miles a year. But it will only let you do it 25K at a time. Is there a wait period between transfers? It works out to be $1,120 for 100K miles. 2. The fine print says: Until February 28, 2011, members may transfer up to 100,000 miles and receive up to 100,000 miles per account, per calendar year. So what happens after February 28th? 3. Do these miles count towards lifetime miles (for lifetime elite status) If this works, I can get 155K miles (100K miles shared + 40K purchased + 15K bonus) for basically $2,240. Is that worth it? Or should I just ask my dad to book me award tickets from his account, or for rev tickets, have him call AA and use his miles to upgrade me?
