American Airlines just announced a fairly lucrative promotion that will run through August 31, 2014. Unfortunately, if you are traveling on your own dime, this promotion probably will not apply to you as it is for passengers flying on a paid full fare, premium economy, business class, or first class ticket. But for those flying on business (or if you splurge on expensive flights!), you’ll be able to rack up a decent amount of American miles.
When flying on American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, US Airways, OpenSkies, and Iberia, you will continue to earn more miles with each round-trip transatlantic flight:
- Business or First class: 25,000 bonus miles
- Premium Economy Class: 10,000 bonus miles
- Full Fare Economy Class: 5,000 bonus miles
This bonus can only be earned on a maximum for four round-trips. So if you are flying on 4 Full Fare Economy class tickets, for example, you will earn a maximum of 20,000 bonus miles. The good 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.
As always, you must register for this promotion PRIOR to traveling.
