I’m a bit late to the party reporting on this (busy with work), but it’s worth noting even a few days late that American is offering one of the most lucrative flight bonuses around.
- American Airlines yesterday launched a “buy two, get one free” promotion that’s aimed squarely at Forest Hills-based JetBlue Airways and other discounters.
The offer covers members of American’s frequent flyer club who take two roundtrips by April 15 between Boston or New York and destinations reachable nonstop in Florida or California. Doing so earns them a free coach class roundtrip ticket, including international flights, redeemable until April 15 of next year.
The free trips have to be booked 14 days in advance and must include a Saturday night stay.
These trips are on top of the usual frequent flyer miles earned on the trip, and on top of miles qualifying for or earning up to triple miles during the first quarter of 2004.
American is providing a real reason for customers to choose their flights over JetBlue.
