Many of you likely have the former Barclays US Airways MasterCard, now the Barclays Aviator card. One of my favorite features of the card are two $99 companion passes (with black out dates of course) that expire on September 30th, 2015.
This is particularly helpful to my family because my 18 month old daughter is just shy of American Airlines gold status this year (she has 30k EQPs but only three segments so she doesn’t actually hold the status yet) and even the companion seats earn status and miles.
After calling in to book the tickets tonight (they can only be done over the phone) I was informed that the deadline of tomorrow night had been extended until October 5th. This was confirmed on their Twitter page as well to a relived Trip Sherpa and apparently also Adam DiBiase.
Let’s just hope that those hot seats to middle America aren’t all gone by the time I get through to their call center tomorrow morning.
