Companion privileges

Rachel realizes it would be great for her colleague Sam to join her for the meeting in London, but Sam doesn't have AirPass and is worried about booking a last-minute flight. No problem. Since AirPass membership comes with companion travel privileges, Rachel can bring one companion with her traveling in the same cabin. Sam's travel will be deducted from Rachel's AirPass account at her member rate, and Sam will enjoy the same in-flight benefits that Rachel does. They will each earn AAdvantage miles for the flight.
