I was looking through some of the AAirpass marketing materials and I am wondering this: If you know you are going to spend at least $10,000 (program minimum) in a year on airfare should the program be strongly considered? Based on the perks it does not seem too bad. I guess it all comes down to the redemption rate. The only obvious downside is the commitment to AA metal. Can anyone comment on the value of the redemptions? Is it close to a midpoint between lowest fare and Y/B?
