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.

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.
