American Airlines has been improving its website over the last year or so by adding award availability and booking capability for awards on more and more of its airline partners including Air Berlin, Alaska Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Hawaiian and Qantas.

Starting today, also allows AAdvantage members to search for and redeem miles for award flights on its Oneworld partner, Royal Jordanian. AAdvantage members can book online for round-trip, one-way, and multi-city award travel on Royal Jordanian or a combination of partner airlines.

AAdvantage members will be able to Royal Jordanian through American’s site now.

To book award travel, just head over to site and login with your AAdvantage information, then then select “Redeem Miles” when putting in a flight search.

JFK-AMM in Business Class for 135,000 miles and $85 in taxes and fees.

JFK-AMM roundtrip in Business Class for 135,000 miles and $85 in taxes and fees.

If you wanted to book a business class award ticket from New York (JFK)- Amman, Jordan using your American AAdvantage miles, the price would be 135,000 miles and $85 roundtrip.

Buying this ticket outright would cost

Buying this ticket outright would cost $4,200.

These same flights for business class from New York (JFK)- Amman, Jordan were running over $4,200, meaning if you redeemed with your AAdvantage miles, you would be looking at a 3.11 cents per mile value.

Bangkok-Hong Kong Business Class for 22,500 miles each-way.

Royal Jordanian also has some interesting “off-label” flights, such as this one from Bangkok-Hong Kong. For a Business Class ticket, it would cost 45,000 miles roundtrip Compare this to buying the ticket outright for around $715 roundtrip, you’d be getting only a 1.6 cents per mile value, so not the greatest, but it’s nice to have this new option available, and you could score an economy ticket for 15,000 miles each way on it.

Buying these same flights outright would be around $715

Royal Jordanian is the national carrier of the Kingdom of Jordan and offers service to 60 destinations worldwide. They joined Oneworld back in 2007, so allowing awards to be booked online through American Airlines is certainly a nice improvement. I just hope American continues adding partner award booking availability to its website so that eventually we can book Cathay Pacific and LAN flights directly on as well!

    One more step in a very slow process of getting the website to what it should be in terms of partner redemptions. A good move, but still too many partners missing.

    Great news! I want to visit Petra one of these days and this is a good option for getting to the region.
