Surprise AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard Approval

On a total whim, I applied for the AA Aviator MC last week.  I was supposed to be off to the garden, but was so tempted by the AA perks (I fly AA a lot).  I have a number of very new TLs and I thought that might scare Barclays off, lol.  I got a 7-10 day message and figured I would likely be declined.  But alas, I got an email today that I was approved - $4000 SL.  My TU Fico was 716 at the time they pulled it.  Definitely pleasantly surprised.  And now I'm really off to the garden.
