Non-stop award space in premium cabins between the US and Australia is one of the toughest things to find out of any frequent flyer award in the world.
And American has been anything but generous with premium cabin international award space generally, except during spurts when they open up space. I couple of days ago I wrote about just such a spurt.
There are still a handful of peak season Los Angeles – Sydney peak season business class saver awards on American available.
There are also some Los Angeles – Auckland non-stop business class saver awards for two or more passengers as well, albeit before peak season. You’ll see a few seats in the weeks that follow this as well.
American charges 80,000 miles each way between the US and South Pacific in business class, and of course British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Alaska and other partner miles should be able to book this space as well.
