To celebrate their new service from LAX to Shanghai which begins on April 5, 2011, American is offering triple flown miles for First or Business Class and double miles for economy.

"Earn triple AAdvantage miles when you fly on a purchased First Class or Business Class fare -- that's a total of more than 20,000 miles* for a one-way trip. Or, fly on a purchased Economy Class fare and earn double AAdvantage miles. And, best of all, you can earn this bonus an unlimited number of times.

In addition to increasing your mileage balance, you will enjoy your flight onboard our Boeing 777 aircraft, the largest and most comfortable aircraft in the American Airlines fleet. The 777 features lie-flat sleeper seats in First Class and a professional atmosphere for working or resting in Business Class."

We all know I wasn't too impressed with AA's First Class, but if you have a trip planned anyway, this is an easy way to rack up extra miles.

And if you want to redeem miles for this route, AA has a ton of availability in coach (35,000 each way), business (55,000) and first class (67,500)- even on the first flight on April 5th.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
