  1. Wow Ctrip is huge. I used them once for a hotel booking deal and it was kinda a hassle if I remember.

  2. In regards to the worst flight attendant, THIS and the fact that AA has completely devalued their FF program into near non-existence is the REASON WHY I have started investing in Delta/United/Alaska FF programs. I used to put up with AA’s poor service (even on first!) and shoddy planes because of the deals I would get being a FF.

  3. @Reva – for miles and try for all your cards and balances. Hope it helps!
