Keep Spending AAdvantage Miles

Keep finding ways to spend American miles on long haul flights in premium cabins. The pending devaluation means you'll be fighting for the same space against more people. Good luck and stay persistent.

70 Quid to Skip the Queue at Heathrow

I would gladly pay £70 to skip all queues at LHR, but the $105 only gets you out of the passport line. United Kingdom’s Registered Traveller Service gives users a faster immigration experience, similar idea, but different process, to Global Entry. I don't fly to the UK often enough to make this worth while.  Also on my last two visits, the immigration line was one or two people long.

American to Devalue March 2016

You'll earn fewer miles for flying, miles will be worth less when buying award tickets, and the program will be more like Delta and United. Not surprising or welcome news. Cash in your miles while they still have their current high value. Good luck, everyone else will be going after the same limited space on Qantas or Finnair.
