AA awards

Hey guys. Question re Mileage redemption.. Have lots of frequent flyer miles racked up and have never redeemed.<BR><BR>1) How does it work if your flight is cancelled or missed, are you able to transfer to another one.<BR><BR>2) Do you get allocated a seat at time of booking or are you relegated to back row!<BR><BR>Any helpful advice would be much appreciated. Looking at using AA miles between Europe and US. Thanks.

Having redeemed points for AA flights, I can answer #2. Yes, each time I got my seat assignment when I booked.

Be aware that the airlines set aside only a certain number of seats for frequent flyers on each flight; book several months in advance for the best available flights.

If your flight is cancelled, it is not your fault. You can ask AA to make another arrangement for you. If you missed the flight, you can ask AA to put you on the next flight if there is seats available. After all if you don't use fly, you can have them put the miles back into your account for $50 fee.

Hello Lindsay.<BR><BR>My understanding is you are protected on an award the same as a paid seat.<BR><BR>Seat assignments are amde just as if they are paid.<BR><BR>A suggestion: If you can travel on an inexpensive fare to Europe you can use miles to upgrade (usually to first class on the domestic and to business class on the international portions). This way you'll receive mileage credit and fly in a more comfortable setting. <BR><BR>Have a good trip.
