American Airlines is notorious for offering little to no business saver awards. Usually you’ll find nothing but AAnytime rates, which are almost double what you’d pay for MileSAAver awards. But on Saturday, it looks like American has opened up lots of premium-cabin saver award seats on flights from the US to Europe.

Even better, AAdvantage charges just 57,500 miles one-way in business class to/from Europe. And, since it’s on American Airlines metal, you won’t get saddled with the terrible British Airways fuel surcharges that are commonplace for AAdvantage awards to Europe.

Let’s take a look at the routes:

New York JFK to Barcelona (BCN)

JFK-BCN

Philadelphia (PHL) to Prague (PRG)

PHL-PRG

Miami (MIA) to Paris (CDG)

MIA-CDG

Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) to Frankfurt (FRA)

DFW-FRA

Philadelphia (PHL) to Budapest (BUD)

PHL-BUD

There might be others out there. We’ll continue to look, but let us know below if you find any other routes with open AAward AAvailability!
