I've read lots of posts here but this is my first threas - would greatly appreciate your help!
In June/July my partner and I are travelling to America and I'm currently looking at some domestic flights: LAX - CLE - NYC - LAX
Continental and American Airlines are approximately the same price (AA goes through Chicago to CLE, however) so I'm trying to decide which carrier to take.
I'm a Qantas FF but my partner is Qantas Gold FF (OW Sapphire) so I'm wondering whether AA recognises OW Sapphire status as a reason to upgrade passengers where possible and how likely upgrades are for OW Sapphire passengers?
Also, on the AA website there is information about AAdvantage members being able to purchase upgrades with points and upgrade vouchers - is there a way to get upgrade coupons, request an upgrade or upgrade using Qantas points?
