The latest NotiFlyer has the news that American is introducing “short haul” awards for fewer miles.
- American AAdvantage has announced that, beginning Sept. 1, MileSAAver coach awards on flights that are less than 750 miles one-way can be redeemed for just 15,000 miles — 10,000 miles less than the standard redemption cost. First- and Business-class short-haul awards can be had for 30,000 miles, a 15,000-mile reduction.
American joins America West in having two tiers of prices for U.S. domestic award redemption based on the distance flown. American’s offer, though, is good only on non-stop itineraries. Here are the details.
