American Airlines just announced a fairly lucrative promotion that will run through March 31, 2017. If you are flying between U.S, Canada, or Mexico to Europe, you can earn between 5,000 and 20,000 bonus miles per roundtrip, up to 2x during the promotion. Fortunately, this promotion is valid for those flying in coach, business, and first class seats, but, only NEW flights are eligible.
You can earn this bonus on American Airlines transatlantic flights (with American Airlines flight numbers) or American codeshares on British Airways, Iberia or Finnair between the U.S. and Europe. You’ll earn the following number of bonus miles per round-trip flight:
- Business or First class: 20,000 bonus miles
- Premium Economy Class: 10,000 bonus miles
- Select Economy Class: 5,000 bonus miles
The nice thing about this promotion is that round-trip travel is not required, as half the round-trip bonus will be posted after each eligible one-way segment. You must register for this promotion PRIOR to traveling. That means only flights BOOKED and TRAVELED between January 19 and March 31, 2017 will count towards this promotion.
Thanks to View from the Wing for letting me know about this promo!
