Find Award Flights on American Airlines

Find Flight You Want the Easy Way

american airlines award mapIt seems like airlines are giving away frequent flyer miles all over the place today.  Get them by using a credit card, flying, buying flowers, dining in restaurants, even when buying electricity for your home.  Getting frequent flyer miles is easy - but spending them is another story.  Airlines have "cheapened" miles earned by making flights unavailable for redemption with frequent flyer miles or simply raised the number of miles needed to ridiculous proportions.  In this blog post The Traveling Professor shows you the easiest way to find the diminishing award flights available on American Airlines.

Finding Award Flights - The Easier Way

Use This Tip to Find OneWorld Award Flights

Airline Award Miles Easy Way to RedeemA big complaint The Traveling Professor always hears is that it can be very difficult to redeem accrued award miles for flights.  I agree that airlines do conspire for us to redeem those awards.  For instance, when traveling from North America to Europe, American Airlines seems to want to route you through London as much as they can.   I feel the reason for this is because taxes and fees going through London are so high, it discourages people from redeeming miles when a purchased ticket does not cost a significant amount more.  And of course, the big problem is that flights are simply not available.  However, I have discovered a tool on American Airline's site that makes it easier (not necessarily easy) to find award flights.
