I posted this in Milepoint to see if there was any type of interest from others in this type of an idea. The AAdvantage representative had asked about ideas for promotions and such. I made a suggestion about either earning or being able to donate systemwide and 500 mile upgrades to AA in order for these upgrades to be provided to service members returning home.
These people risk their lives for us and even though upgrades are not much in the grand scheme of things, I do believe that if there is a way to make sure at least some of them are able to return home in a bit more comfort than coach… we should definitely explore this option.
What do you all think about this idea? Would you support it or participate in it?
