AA – Biz US to Australia or NZ only allowing economy??

AA – Biz US to Australia or NZ only allowing economy??

  1. Sam M. -

    These awards are supposed to be 80k points for business class. However, every redemption I see has you going from the west coast to Australia in economy for 80k? More ridiculous, many connecting flights connect in SFO, but if you search SFO to Australia or NZ, it routes you back to DFW or something crazy, and you still end up in economy. Does anyone know of a workaround? I have attached some screen shots. Thanks.

    There’s just almost never saver space available to Australia or New Zealand using American miles.

    Look at Fiji Airways, or connecting in Asia (which costs more, but is better than overpaying for economy!).
