Getting business class award seats to/from Europe using American Airlines miles without being hit with huge fuel surcharges by flying British Airways operated flights can be tough. It can be borderline impossible if you want to fly during the busy summer travel months with your whole family up front using miles. However, right now it is significantly easier than normal thanks to pretty wide open award availability on American Airlines operated flights.
I’ve booked half of our award trip to Europe next summer, but have been stalking availability trying to book the return without much luck until I saw a post on View From the Wing about this improved availability using American miles. I’m betting this availability does not last long, so if you are looking for multiple premium cabin seats to/from Europe using your American Airlines miles you are doing yourself a disservice by not hopping online this morning and at least putting something on hold for free while you think about it.
On my brief searches the availability in/out of Dallas was not as good as other American hubs such as LA, Miami, and Chicago, but if you are flexible with your routing you should find something that might work.
Gary did a great job outlining availability from different cities so check out his post for more details…just don’t delay!
