Take Advantage of American Airlines AAnytime Travel
American Airlines and US Airways prepare to merge their AAdvantage and Dividend Miles programs in the second quarter, however, until then you have another option. It’s possible to book the American AAnytime awards which are actually a better return.
If you have a bunch of miles and you want the freedom to use them as you desire, because of American’s new redemption levels, you have a lot more flexibility now.
They now have a five tier structure, with an AAnytime award level of 45,000 in business.
AA.com is pricing out US Airways awards with these levels now, which is a great deal as those flights were previously only available with the SAAver level only.
In theory, US Airways will price out higher-level awards on American as well at the same levels, but we’re not sure when that will happen.
