    haha! :) I don't think so - while I live here, I am still a US resident...just booked my trip at the end of Oct on DL and the government is paying for my AA trip to BOS in November. At least with the BOS trip I can use the EU11 promo! :) I'll probably be on AA at Christmas, but this offer ends 16 Dec.

    Thanks again!
