American Airlines Adds Three Partner Airlines To Online Award Booking (Sri Lankan, Qatar, Air Tahiti Nui )
American Airlines has expanded their online award searching and booking. You can now book the following airlines online:
- Sri Lankan
- Air Tahiti Nui
Earlier this year they briefly added Sri Lanka and Qatar (along with Cathay Pacific, Malaysian, S7 & LATAM) only to quickly remove them shortly after. Recently they also added Fiji and Malaysia as well. It looks like these are showing most routes, whereas when they were briefly added before not all routes that were bookable via phone were showing online. As I mentioned last time, some people will actually see this as a devaluation as making these easier to book will mean that competition for award space will increase. Personally I hate dealing with long boring award calls so I see this as a win, but can sympathize with those who have spent time perfecting these award calls and routings.
