Increased business class AA award availability on many routes

American Airlines saver-level award availability has become increasingly difficult to find in the past year or two. Right now, we’re seeing better-than-usual availability on many routes in business class on American Airlines flights (and plenty of availability in economy class as well). We’ve found increased availability to Europe, Asia, and South America. Some examples follow, but there is good availability on many more routes – this is not an exhaustive list.

Wow: Business Class to Europe + 28K miles or more for $1410 RT

As reported by First Class Flyer, there is a fantastic airfare sale on a number of airlines between Washington DC and Greece and between Chicago and Sofia, Bulgaria – though there may be other departure and arrival points available.

But this morning a couple of readers commented that they couldn’t get the feature to work.  So, I tried to replicate my results from yesterday. I…

UPDATE 8/3/17: The feature described in this post has disappeared!  See this post for details. Thanks to One Mile at a Time I just learned that Virgin Atlantic is now allowing users to book awards on Delta flights online.  This is huge because Virgin Atlantic award prices are excellent on many routes and Virgin Atlantic miles are incredibly easy to get.  Previously it was difficult to figure out if Delta saver awards were available to…
