I have two American Airlines systemwide upgrades to giveaway to two AFF members.

I have decided not to be involved in selecting the winners. If you wish to apply for an upgrade certificate, please send an email to support@australianfrequentflyer.com.au with the title "AA upgrade" and short (maximum 25 words) motivating statement as to why you believe you should win one of the two upgrades. Please send your email by 6pm WST (because at least AFF isn't east-coast centric) on 11 July 2014. The winners will be selected by the AFF moderation team based on the creativity and ingenuity of the motivating statement. The decision will be final. The winners will be posted on this thread and be contacted by PM within seven days of the close of the competition. Anyone who has been an AFF member since 1 February 2014 and who has made at least 25 posts can apply. AFF moderators and administrators are obviously excluded, as are existing AAdvantage Executive Platinum members (I'm trying to share the love).

Drron and serfty are the resident AA gurus who know more about the SWUs than me and I'm sure they'd be happy to answer your questions about how they work. But some points to note:

  1. The flight you're looking to upgrade must be both marketed and operated by AA.
  2. Checking availability of an upgrade is difficult if you're not an AA EXP. Therefore, throw your hat in the ring and if you win we'll check availability. If it's there, it's yours; if there's no space you can be waitlisted.
  3. Each SWU is valid for (I think) up to three flight segments on the same ticket. So, for example, if you're flying LAX-DFW-JFK-LHR, a single SWU will cover all flights.
  4. You must be travelling on a paid ticket (not an award).
  5. You'll get the most bang for your buck on AA's new A321 trans-con aircraft travelling between JFK and LAX and SFO, as well as the upgraded 777s but it's entirely up to you as to which flight(s) you hope to use the certificate on.

Any questions relating to criteria for the competition (in case there's something I've missed) should be posted here but I'll leave answering up to a moderator - it's now they're competition to run.

Make sure you don't post them in the playground (they don't count) and don't spam-post ;)

Very generous offer!

Thanks, I'm onto it! An upgrade on my DFW-HNL in September would be very welcome

4 years ago, I was gifted 4 AA eVips by a generous AFFer which allowed us to fly SFO-MIA-UIO in F/J....for the price of Y fares. Remarkably good and generous people on this site!!
