    Unlike in the past, they will not *automatically* roll you over. Just wait until the flight closes out and departs before approaching the agent to make sure that you are in fact rolled over to the following day's flight. Hopefully, you won't be the one left behind!

    Thank you guys so much! Even though that was a silly question the answers you all gave me were still full of valuable information, haha.

    Also, I heard that you should dress appropriately incase the only space available is in first class, because you could be refused because of how you are dressed? Is there anything else like that I should know?

    My date of departure is less than two weeks away now! I'm so excited!

    Personally I always list for F (shoot for the stars)
    JayA non-revving is an art form, it’s luck and you’re playing the odds.
    Read the Trip Book, rely on your preparation, accept that you and your fiancÚ can be split and/or stuck, and keep the non-rev prayer close to the vest.
    Oh and a sense of humor it’s an asset.
    Keep'em Flying

    Love the dreaded 'Sorry, only First Class is available'!

    When AA had a strict FC dress code, I always dressed the part, even on short flights. You just never know.


    Good luck and keep us posted how everything goes. Crossing our fingers that you and your fiance get one of the eight lucky seats!

    Hi everyone! I'm not sure if any one will be able to answer this in time, but I'm a little confused about our check-in. We have two flights, one from PHX/DFW and then DFW/HKG. We checked in for our entire PNR, but when I look at the priority lists, I only see us on the flight from PHX to DFW. I don't see us at all on the DFW/HKG flight. I've tried checking in again and it says that we already have checked in. Just want to make sure I'm doing this right! We leave for the airport in 12 hours, lol!

    So also, it appears the only seats that will be open will be in business. We listed for coach though. If the only seats they have open are in business, will it matter that we didn't list for them? I know we would be behind anyone listing for business, but if there are open seats we could take them (as long as we pay accordingly for them) right?

    Thank you so much to everyone on here again. I can't wait to tell you all about China!

    You will not show up on the hkg flight priority list until after you are issued a boarding pass for your phx to dfw flight. If first/business are all that is available that is where you will sit. Good luck and safe travels!

    One small addition to that: You pay for where you sit, not for what you're listed in. If you list for economy but sit in F, you will get the bill. Think of the class as a preference... you'll get what's available, usually with a warning from the agent if it's an upgrade. If both are available, you'll get what you listed for.

    Question - I am currently a companion for an American FA, and can book my own flights thru travel.usairways.com

    Is there a way a way for a companion to book their own flights on JetNet? Especially with the systems merging in a few weeks?
