AA News Page Six Style: Rumor, Leaks, and Sneak Peeks

Rotterdam - gossip and rumours

Earlier this month, American was mentioned in a “Just asking” piece on Page Six of the NY Post:

WHICH megastar is so notoriously rude to airline staff that American Airlines workers prefer to take breaks to avoid him?

Hmmmm….wonder who that might be? Alex Van Halen?

Well, in the spirt of Page Six, I bring you these news items:


It’s been rumored for about a week that the San Diego Admirals Club was closing. I don’t usually mention rumors unless it’s been confirmed by JonNYC in the Traveling Better forums:

The Admirals Club was advised by the SAN Airport that we would be required to relocate and either build a new Club or negotiate with a 3rd party Lounge provider for use of their Lounge.

Sneak Peek

Here’s some advance news about an offer (from one of my favorite retailers) that hasn’t gone live yet.

4X AAdvantage Miles from Newegg.com

Award: 4 miles per dollar

Dates: May 19, 2012 – May 22, 2012

Offer: Limited time offer for AAdvantage eShopping members! Earn double miles per dollar spent when you shop at Newegg. Newegg is a leading e-commerce company focused on providing a positive shopping experience and a broad selection of high-quality technology & entertainment retail goods at very competitive prices.

I’m looking for a new wifi router that allows me shape traffic so this offer arrives just in time. I almost purchased one yesterday, but fortunately I decide to do a little more research. I’m glad I waited.

Even better, now I have good excuse to buy a SSD!

Go here for full details.
