[Dead] Wow! $1175 RT biz class + hotel to Paris w/ AA vacations

American Airlines vacations is running some incredible deals on round trip business class flights and included hotel packages to Paris from $1175 per person based on double occupancy (and a few hundred more to Rome). That’s an amazing price for round trip business class flights to Europe — even if you throw away the hotel and book something else, it’s hard to beat this kind of pricing if you’re interested in a trip to Europe.

American’s long haul business class can be pretty nice.

 

The Deal

  • American Airlines vacations is running some amazing deals on vacation packages including business class airfare and four nights of hotel in Paris, Rome, and potentially more cities (originating in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and potentially more cities)
  • Direct link to search at AA vacations

Key Details

  • Various cities available from March to October

Quick Thoughts

We’ve written in the past about how vacation packages offered directly from airlines can sometimes offer tremendous value. It makes sense: airfare makes up the majority of the cost in a vacation package and the airline obviously has all the flexibility they want in terms of being able to discount that. Discounting it via a vacation package enables them to keep pricing opaque.

The cheapest packages are of course with low-end hotels. If you’re looking for a paid hotel, options run the gamut. On the flip side, if you’d rather use your points to stay at the Park Hyatt, just book the cheapest hotel package possible and throw away the hotel portion.

Even better, it looks like the cheapest pricing is on flights operated by British Airways. I don’t know for sure whether or not you could credit that to Alaska and earn their big premium cabin bonuses, but if you can that’d be awesome.

This surely won’t last. If you have Paris or Rome on your dome, look at this sooner rather than later.

And I don’t think you’d want to stay at that first hotel listed, Kyriad . The TA reviews are priceless

Tried several times and got all the way to the confirmation page only to receive “Product You Requested is Not Available”

All: Try searching through Orbitz packages. Orbitz is finding similar prices and lets you pick fewer nights for the hotel.

Still nothing from LAX. Trying 4 and 5 nights in any month between May and Oct and can’t find anything close to this price.

Not seeing anything remotely close to those prices. Searched every gateway I could think of on the east coast that BA and AA serve. Even the example of the screenshot is 3 times higher. May just be the dates I’m looking at.

Through Orbitz I’m seeing about $1300 Bos-CDG for Feb 28 to Mar 4 (just to give one example)

Changing dates did the trick. Also, on AAVacations you can choose fewer dates for the hotel stay just like on Orbitz.

How do you change fewer dates for the hotel? I can’t find it. Or do you have to call?

I had the same thought, but I highly doubt it. The Alaska partner page (https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/how-to-earn-miles/airline-partners/british-airways) says that to get credit for BA flights, the flight needs to be both marketed and operated by BA, and have a BA XXXX flight number within the ranges listed.

And to get credit for AA flights, it needs to be an international flight both marketed and operated by AA prior to March 1. So I think that these AA Vacations flights operated by BA wouldn’t be creditable to Alaska, just AA-operated flights in January or February.
