Is the AA status match from Hyatt worth a ride on the status-match-go-round?

Greg manufactures Delta Diamond status every year and loves it. I do like elite status in general — I’ve written quite a bit lately about matching around and around to keep elite status in a number of programs. But personally, I’ve never valued airline elite status much at all.

Now Book Etihad awards on AA.com (including first class apartments)

As reported by View from the Wing, Etihad Airways awards for dates within about a month of departure are now bookable on the American Airlines website (aa.com).

American Airlines Planes
