    I am looking to fly from Rio to Buenos Aires in late November, returning in mid December, and want to credit the miles to US Airways DM. Will the 6-month wrap up allow me to do this flying Tam (neither Avianca nor Copa fly this route)?

      At this point I’d say you’re probably safe with the 6-month horizon.

    I’d definitely like to see TAM join OneWorld. I have lots of AA miles to use and would love more options!

    Off topic, but I didn’t see a simpler way to contact you.

    El AL changed the codes for award inventory. Can you double check that your excellent tool get the economy awards properly? It seems to have an overdose of availability. (its possible that they release a different amount to their AA partner, though.

    Personally, I think it’s silly to think that they’d do anything but join oneWorld. I know they’re trying to build suspense, but it’s coming for sure. It’s just my opinion, but I’d put serious money on it.

      I agree that they’re likely to end up in OneWorld, but until that’s actually announced it will be an interesting situation to watch it play out.

      I’ll look in to the LY award inventory change.

    I haven’t made my GIG/EZE reservation yet, and won’t until I can clear my US Chairman’s upgrade to GIG. Am I still safe with being able to get *A credit for a Tam RT in Nov/Dec?

      Yes, BrooxH, I think you’re probably still fine. Do pay attention to fare classes and such in terms of what earns in the US DM program, but the’ll still be in *A at that point, I think.
