American Airlines has launched an unadvertised sale on AAnytime business class awards, reducing the cost on some flights from 110,000 to 85,000 miles this summer. Be sure to check all your options though, as that might not represent the best use of your miles.


The Deal

  • Book business class AAnytime awards to Europe from 85,000 miles this summer on American Airlines.

Key Terms

  • Expiry date unknown.

Quick Thoughts

As Lucky at OMaaT notes, business class AAnytime awards usually start at 110,000 miles each way, so this sale is reducing the cost of those by 25,000 miles in some cases.

For example, searching for flights from New York to Prague this summer brings up a handful of days with 85,000 mile availability.

AA Business Class AAnytime NYC-PRG

The important thing to remember is that AAnytime awards are significantly more expensive than MileSAAver awards. The reason for this is that AAnytime awards are available without restriction so long as the business class cabin hasn’t sold out.

American Airlines Award Types

If there is MileSAAver availability though, you’d definitely be better off booking that kind of award. Looking at the same dates from New York to Prague, there’s a ton of availability at the MileSAAver rate which is almost 30,000 miles less than the cheapest AAnytime awards.

AA Business MileSAAver NYC-PRG

There’s even excellent First class availability on that route, also costing 85,000 miles.

AA First MileSAAver NYC-PRG

On other routes though, MileSAAver availability won’t be as good as this. 85,000 miles for an AAnytime award might therefore be worth it if the dates you need to travel are fairly restricted and an AAnytime award is your only choice.
