American Airlines Unadvertised Award Sale To Japan From 45,000 Miles One Way

Update: Post originally said Delta, meant to be American Airlines

The Offer

  • American Airlines is having an unadvertised flash sale. You should be able to find flights to Japan for 45,000 miles one way in business

Our Verdict

Availability seems to be from LAX to Tokyo, but usually other routes are available as well.

Hat tip to Monkey Miles

Did you mean AA? Link leads to article referencing AA.

Doc, you must not have seen my comment when the 61K to Hong Kong was posted last week. I reported that to you then, so this has been going on for at least that long.

Curious if this has been active all week. Reading Doc’s site about AA dynamic redemption gone live earlier in the week I checked DEN->NRT (Japan) to view the damage 1st hand. Most redemptions turned my saved AA miles into Zimbabwe dollars overnight. However I was pleasantly surprised to see a few itineraries at 45k one-way business. Sale or *surprise* dynamic pricing actually in the buyer’s favor?

Is this specifically on AA metal only?

Is there a better way to search these flights than going to aa.com and doing trial and error to see which dates offer the sale?

Great, now award space during the Olympics will be non-existent.

Lots of dynamic pricing deals with AA.

20k in economy and 50k in biz to LHR, 20k in economy to Tokyo.

Probably other deals out there too for those that want to dig.

Booked in PE for 30k o/w, not a terrible redemption (and lots more avail than biz, at least when I looked). So far I’m liking this dynamic pricing a lot better than DL. Also got in on the 10k Aus/NZ, great year to dump my AA miles!

Hey @William, I noticed that you gave a hat tip to Monkey Miles for this offer. Do you happen to have a list or a few travel/credit related websites you refer to often? Thanks!
