Business frequent flyer programs allow businesses to earn points on the itineraries their employees travel while employees still earn miles and points as individuals. In addition, these programs provide often offer mileage bonuses for which individuals aren’t eligible, like the current offer from American Airlines’ Business Extradouble points for Main Cabin travel and triple points for Premium Cabin travel between New York and London on American Airlines or AA codeshare flights operated by British Airways. You must book and begin travel by June 30, 2014.

Between them, American Airlines and British Airways operate up to 17 non-stop daily flights from New York to London, including three peak-time direct flights from Newark (EWR) to Heathrow (LHR) and BA’s all-business class Club World London City service from New York (JFK) to London City (LCY). If you’re most interested in this offer’s triple points bonus, check out my recent post on Comparing Business Class on British Airways and American Airlines to help you decide between the two carriers.

With Business Extra, you normally earn 2 points per $10 spent on eligible airfares, and you can redeem those points for over 50 award redemption offers including travel (2,000-25,000 points), upgrades (650-3,100 points), Admirals Club day passes (300 points) and memberships (3,000 points), conference room rentals (900 points) and gold status (2,400 points).

To be eligible to earn this offer’s bonus points, a company must be enrolled in the Business Extra program and register using promotion code BXNYLON14. Tickets must be issued on American Airlines 001 ticket stock, and reservations booked using a frequent flyer award will be excluded from this offer. Bonus points will be posted to the registered Business Extra account within six to eight weeks after June 30, 2014.
