Yup..."preferred boarding" is a step below "priority boarding"...kinda of a joke
Quote: Eligible cardmembers will board after Priority boarding is complete, but before the rest of economy boarding. The boarding benefit will display on your American Airlines boarding pass as Group 5.
Quote: JoeD1949 said: CLT to SXM (round trip) in November is $864 on American. We pay through the nose for our Charlotte hub. We can fly Delta through Atlanta for $80 less, but it takes about 4 more hours.
Nothing like a monopoly to drive up and control airfares! We just remind ourselves how great living in the Carolinas is and then we forget about the airfare premium out of CLT. :)
We have booked AA out of GSP (upstate SC) for October of this year to SXM. The cost was a little over $100 cheaper per ticket for the flights. The flight goes from GSP to Charlotte and catches the same direct flight that we would have driven to Charlotte and caught. Who knows how they determine prices. It was that way last year also.
