It's so hard to find N fare on AA now

N fare is the lowest upgradable fare on AA with EVIP certificate and price always very low, they used to put almost all cheap ticket under N class.

This year, lots of cheap fare is also available, but all change to Q or O class, which are not upgradable. The annoying part is they don't have option to search cheapest upgradable fare other than calling them.

AA Executive Platinum(one world Emerald)have access to First Class Lounge

Since this is my first year as AA Executive Platinum(one world Emerald), I thought the one world alliance benefit is similar to Star alliance, but it turns out to be a lot better. When I tried to enter Admiral club at ORD when connecting from Shanghai, the agent told me I can also use Flagship lounge around K19, I was surprised when I heard that.

Later I went to oneworld website and learned that as one world Emerald, I have access to all First Class and Business Class/Frequent Flyer lounges in addition to use First Class Check in counter. Those are the benefits you don't get as Staralliance Gold.

Still, both alliances are great and make Skyteam the weakest alliance.

BMI award redemption level increase effective May 1st,2009

Via View from the Wings, Effective May 1st, 2009, BMI FIRST CLASS award redemption will increase by 25% and First Class award flights with Lufthansa will also incur a surcharge of 10,000 destinations miles for each one-way award flight.

First Class award flights

Miles only Miles plus Cash
Current x 2

Miles x2 Cash x2

From 1 May 2009 x 2.5

Miles x2.5 Cash x2.5

Not too bad at all consider BMI still offers the best rate on redemption and one way award for half RT. As for LH first class, BMI is not allow member to redeem LH first class award using C+P option, if the new surcharge of 10000 is for also good for C+P, that's acutally an improvement.

Still, no airline program can beat BMI diamond club

Will have some trip report soon!

I am currently back to States for few days and will have some trip report once I got my camera later this week.
