Interesting AA Booking Issue
My family and I are scheduled to travel in late June to Italy (yep, probably not going to happen). We have paid tickets. I looked up the same / similar routing to see if switching to miles might be better (let’s leave aside that the actual switch may be problematic).
I found some fascinating mileage redemption options:
34K round trip web special (wow)
400K one-way business class (also, but a different kind of, wow). This was recently 110k each way…seems like AA trying to encourage some bookings and prevent / strongly discourage other bookings.
Thought you might find that interesting (rather than an actual question).
I’ve seen similar occurances with miles of late. The web specials do make me scratch my head sometimes. I’ve also seen r/t business class tickets (paid) cost less than premium economy by almost half – if you were willing to do silly flight times. Crazy.
