[Expired] Award Fare: 10,000 AA Miles Roundtrip to AKL or SYD from SEA, SFO, DFW, LAX, NYC

Deal is no longer available, sign up for hot deal alerts to never miss a deal like this again.

Update:

  • One way flights available for 6,000 miles
  • Other city pairings are possible (e.g SFO, DFW, LAX, NYC, SEA to AKL or SYD)
  • Availability seems to start in October/November and end in March
  • Make sure you click ‘Economy Web Specials’ after entering dates to see this pricing

The Offer

  • You can currently book LAX > AKL for 10,000 American Airline miles round trip. Looks like dates in January & February 2020 are available under web specials.

Our Verdict

I think AA just announced this routing (actually it was different New Zealand routings) and they have been talking about dynamic award pricing, so I’m sure this is a 100% totally legit sale (just don’t book anything non refundable in case they cancel it). Won’t last long.

Seems dead now, should not have hesitated when I first saw this.

Thanks Doc! Got the tweet and immediately jumped on it (a pain to search on mobile!) and was able to grab a seat down and back at the end of January/beginning of February. At 6’8″, I’m still not sure about it, but got the exit row seat and we’ll see what the upgrade space looks like close to departure for exec plat.

The cheapest fares I am seeing are 27.5k each way and 40k each way from all of the cities listed using the calendar feature from January through March. I guess this is dead.

How big is a chance this will be honored by AA?

I’m wondering if this will be a new trend for new routes. With the recent announcement of nonstop to New Zealand and all the dynamic pricing hoopla, I’m actually starting to believe it wasn’t an error, but more of a first come first serve introduction.

And I only booked the outbound, can’t book inbound now. Can I cancel within 24 hours?

veeRob

Jake Yes.

No since hold was an option. Good news is AA may not honor thus you will get a full refund if thats the case.Otherwise is probably cheaper to buy the miles than the cancel fee

There is no relation there. Hold is often an option. AA says tickets are refundable up to 24 hours after purchase https://www.aa.com/i18n/customer-service/faqs/customer-service-faqs.jsp
