Just a quick question…
Are award tickets are possible to book around Christmas? I currently have 250,000 AA miles, would love to take my 2 kidos to BKK for Christmas break. I can see some availability 12.22 for outbound but then not sure if I could get back to RDM before 1.5-6, not close to being available yet.. Harder to get flights after Christmas back to US? Your expert opinion? Can fly out of YVR, SEA, SFO, LAX, pretty flexible. Thanks, your humble reader, Darla
@ Darla — It should be possible eventually, but American doesn’t have access to award space until 331 days out:
If you book as soon as the schedule opens you should have pretty good luck, though. Cathay Pacific is good about opening space, even over the holidays.
