Our Verdict

Not as generous as Southwest’s promotion where you get 20% back in points. Load factors are still well down, so it’s not surprising that these airlines are trying to stimulate travel with these types of promotions. American Airlines also has 5,000 pricing on some routes currently.

Interesting. Airline are actually trying to push people to use miles for award travel over cash. It’s a strange world we live in now…
