It's sad to see an airline as customer-friendly as American doing something so customer unfriendly. It's also strange that the other airline doing it is Southwest. This is one space where United, Delta, Alaska, Frontier, etc. are all ahead of American in terms of allowing customers to actually use their data. I'll say this - until I can track my miles in a third party service, I'll intentionally not be interacting with the AAdvantage site any more than I have to, and certainly won't be clicking through any promotions offered. These moves to capture my eyeballs and data do nothing more than push me away from whatever they're you're trying to capture me into.
