Similar to recent promotions from British Airways and American for European and UK residents, American has launched a promo Stateside that will award AAdvantage members with thousands of bonus miles for roundtrip flights from the US or Canada to Europe on American, British Airways and Iberia.
Then, when you fly roundtrip between the US or Canada and Europe in first class, business or on select (read: full) economy fares between now and January 31, 2013, you can start earning bonuses in the following increments:
The bonus breaks down like this:
1 Roundtrip = 15,000 total bonus miles
2 Roundtrips = 35,000 bonus miles, total 50,000 miles
3 Roundtrips = 50,000 bonus miles, total 100,000 miles
4+ Roundtrips = 50,000 bonus miles each time
The offer is available to AAdvantage members who are US or Canada residents.
Eligible fare classes include the following:
-American Airlines: First and Business fares F, A, J, R, D or I; Economy fares in Y, B or H
-British Airways: First or Club World fares F, A, J, R, C, D or I; World Traveller Plus (premium economy) or full-fare World Traveller booked in W, E, T, Y, B or H
-Iberia: Business class fares booked in J, C, D, R or I; or Economy fares booked in Y fare class
Also to note, a roundtrip is defined as travel in the same purchased booking class for both the departure and the return transatlantic flight segments, and there don’t seem to be any rules (like there were with the BA promo) about flying to London as a final destination, so it seems like everywhere is fair game.
This could be really lucrative for those business travelers who shuttle between the US or Canada and Europe, and if you have the premium travel coming up necessary to score these bonuses, it might be worth creating an AAdvantage account just to take advantage of this particular promo even if American isn’t your carrier of choice. After all, you can still score the bonus miles flying British Airways or Iberia as well!
