In the current economic times and AA is faceing, you would think they would treat their loyal customers well, but they seem to treat their loyal customers worse in poor economic times. I just called to get an award ticket from LAX-MEX. In the past I have been able to call up for an award ticket and tell them what flight I wanted and exactly what seat I wanted and I got it. Now they tell me the only flights that they are giving awards for arrive at midnight. Midnight does me no good, and now they charge you to change you ticket, this is also new for award travel. I guess they want to give the good tickets to paying people. But i figure I flew over 30,000 miles to get that award, I guess my next 30,000 will go to Delta.I bet doug likes that idea.
