I have been checking the US Airways site almost daily for a month or so now as they release 2013 off-peak award availability. I was a huge fan of the US Airways Grand Slam last fall, and collected enough miles for my husband and I to go to Europe in their Envoy Suites next year. There has not been much availability……until today.
Admittedly, I have been too sick and too busy to check availability the last couple of days, but when I saw a comment on The Frugal Travel Guy’s website today that the availability looked great today, I scrambled over to check, and it was true. I have two off-peak Envoy suite tickets on hold while I make sure that the dates will work out in terms of hotels, babysitters, etc. I’m so freaking excited. More to come tonight, but check out the availability if you have some US Airways miles that are burning a hole in pocket.
In case you aren’t familiar with the US Airways chart, in this case Blue = off-peak saver availability in the Envoy suites. That is 30,000 miles each way (or 55,000 round trip if you have the US Airways Mastercard). I found London Gatwick and Charles de Gaulle to have exceptional availability on the routes I was checking. Other cities may also have good availability, but I haven’t had a chance to check them all yet.
Let me know what you are seeing!
