[Confirmed] American Airlines Working On Dynamic Award Pricing, Plans To Ditch Award Charts
Update 6/3/19: According to Gary Leff this has now been confirmed.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise after both United & Delta have ditched award charts but there is a rumor circulating that American Airlines is already actively working on doing the same and moving from award charts to dynamic pricing. In a recent interview with Gary Leff from VFTW American Airlines said they were researching ways to enhance earn and redemption opportunities and a recent change to the award search tool also both point to moving in this direction.
I haven’t heard of any timelines on when American plans to make these changes and nothing has been confirmed yet, but I’d be incredibly surprised if this doesn’t happen and I’d expect it to happen sometime this year.
