Traveling to Israel from US this summer- best way to get most AA miles?

Traveling to Israel from US this summer- best way to get most AA miles?

  1. SBH425

    I’m traveling to Tel Aviv in July and I’d like to fly on a Oneworld alliance partner so that I can maximize the miles I get on American Airlines. I’ve currently got Gold status, and I’d like to maintain it. My question then, is this: Since AAL now does this dollar valuation on miles awarded based on what you pay, is there a partner airline that would be a better bang for my buck from a mileage perspective? Also, I know some airlines base fares don’t count towards miles on partner airlines- are there any I should avoid?

    Welcome [USER=3044]@SBH425[/USER] – you’ll have to check the fare classes of the flights to see how much credit you’d get. Look at [URL=’’][/URL] to see how much each partner fare class would earn for you.
