Quite a while ago we were told that we would have to change our jetnet password on a regular basis. If I remember correctly it was every 90 days. I changed mine at that time and have not made a change since then. I haven't heard anything recently about needing to change again.

Does anybody know if this requirement has been dropped? If not will we somehow be advised when we are getting close to the time that jetnet would cut us off? As time goes by and I get older life seems to get more complicated. Keeping track of all these extraneous things gets more and more difficult.

Thanks for any help.

Dave,

Yes it must be changed every 90 days. Fortunately for me....my younger, AA FA wife, takes care of all that for me.

My brain cells are dying faster than leaves in the fall.

Thanks for the info. I think it's now been more than 90 days since I changed my password and I'm still able to get into Jetnet. Is there any setup when you enter Jetnet that tells you that your 90 days are expiring and that you need to make a change or are you just cut off?

I don't really understand why Jetnet requires a change every 90 days. There must be some secret information on Jetnet that would be of interest to hackers that I just don't see.

Are you still considering the possibility of travel in Peru? I've been down here for the past 6 weeks and last year did an extensive trip around Southern Peru with one of my grandsons. If you are let me know and I'll fill you in on some of the highlights.

Dave,

Like you, I haven't changed my password for I don't know how long, but surely more than 90 days.

In any case, in the middle right of the Jetnet logoin window there is a clickable link <Login Help>. If you can't log in with your current password you can click login help and you'll be given the opportunity to answer your security questions and generate a new password.

I received a 10 day warning that I needed to change my password, about 2 weeks ago.

If you have Jetnet as an older "Favorite" you cannot change it as the login box is outdated.

I last changed my password 6/08 and nobody has bothered me since. It would seem that, at least for now, fully retired people are OK while current employeees are still required to change every three months.

After the uproar that was caused last year it might be possible that AA is more than happy to let sleeping dogs lie or, from our standpoint, let's "don't rock the boat".

O.K.

Just checked with my wife. For sure active employes must update every 90 days and she does get a warning, when it is coming due.

She was uncertain about retirees although she automatically changes mine(retiree) when she changes hers.(active)

Of course at AA...nothing is consistant or logical.

************************************************

Just when you thought it was safe to...

Up pops the devil. When I went to JETNET this AM I was informed that since I had last changed my password 4/30/08, I needed to change it again.

Good news is it was very painless, just enter and click.

Dick, I have had to change mine every 90 days for the past year or so. I think maybe they are hoping we will forget our passwords. Each change of password must include a upper and lower case and numeral plus a symbol on the numeral upper case. Nothing related to any password used in the last six months is allowed. I think this is something that only a Computer Geek would demand of us and I see red every time I have to comply. Tom

I changed my password once when the "program" started and have not had to change it since. Weird!

About two months ago I entered Jetnet. I was informed that within a certain period of time I needed to change my password. As stated on this site the change was easy but it does get to be a pain remembering so many password changes. This is the only password protected site that I have used that requires an ongoing change of password. I really wonder at the reasoning. Fortunately they do remind us of the need for change and give us a window to do so.

I just tried to access Jetnet and unable to do so. I followed all the prompts and then wound up having to input a new password. I'm not sure why some are able to get in without ever having changed their password while others have to jump through the hoop but in any event it's a painless process.

I've been using USAir for passes and so it was somewhat of a sticker shock to find out that roundtrip between SAN and TPA would run $213 in fees using D2 charges (the same pass on USAir would be $50). I guess we've all been spoiled with our past non-rev policy on TWA. At any rate, I got a full fare on Continental for the same price as AA's standby; so much for that great benefit! I sure miss TWA!!

I'm no expert on the charges but I think this must be a mistake. I just came home from Peru on a D2TWR pass and my total cost from Lima to St. Louis through MIA was $106 and this included a $30 LIM airport departure tax. I was boarded in Business class from LIM and First from MIA. $213 sounds more like the charges for a D3. I sure hope that the D2 charges haven't gone up so much in the last 30 days.

Dave,

Oops, my bad! Thanks for showing me the error of my ways! [Embarrassed]
I went back into Jetnet and realized that I was looking at the trip value cost, not the actual charges for D2 travel. With my routing, SAN-DFW-TPA RT, the total charge is $84.28/F and $46.80/Y. That's basically the same as I've been paying on USAir. I still needed to buy a full fare though as I have to be in TPA on a certain date and can't afford to be 'bumped.' No complaints from me regarding the non-rev charges, it sure beats full fare!
Thanks again for setting me straight!

Don

My pleasure!! I spend a great deal of time non reving around the Western Hemisphere and try to keep up with AA travel benefits. Like you I have passes on other airlines as my son flys for a carrier that provides us as parents with travel benefits on Delta, United and his company. Trying to keep track of charges and non rev procedures for 4 different airlines with ZED procedures thrown in the mix can be a daunting but satisfying effort for an old guy. For those of us that are retired and love to travel passes have added much gold to the "golden years". Plus, being retired I generally could care less if I get bumped. Just adds to the excitement of the unknown and unanticipated.

Not sure if this works for TWR's, but if you actually worked for, or retired from AA, you can get a regular ticket for 20% off ANY published fare.

You have to book online to reserve the space then call res. to get the fare.

Unless there has been a change in the last year it is my understanding that the 20% discount does apply to the TWA retirees.

As Dave pointed out, TWRs are eligible for the 20% although that's not always the cheapest way to go. In my case, I lucked out and got a RT on Continental for $225. AA's fare for the same flight would have been over $300, even with the twenty percent off.

Bottom line, don't assume that with twenty percent off, AA is the cheapest way to go on a full fare; there are quite a few deals out there and a limited amount of really cheap seats available on most airlines. It's all a matter of timing and getting the seat before the discount brokers snatch them up.
