Earn an American Bonus for Full-Fare Europe Flights

Earn an American Bonus for Full-Fare Europe Flights

The best promotions are those that are both generous and accessible.

This offer from American is generous enough, but its restriction to premium and full fares puts it out of reach for many leisure travelers.

Offer Details

Between May 12 and August 31, AAdvantage members can earn bonus miles for flights on American, US Airways, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, or OpenSkies between the U.S., Canada, or Mexico and Europe.

Bonuses for roundtrips are as follows:

  • First or business class – 25,000 miles
  • Premium economy – 10,000 miles
  • Full-fare economy – 5,000 miles

One-way flights earn half the above number of bonus miles.

The bonus may be earned for a maximum of four roundtrips.

Registration is required.

(For those who are so inclined, there’s a British Airways version of this promotion here.)

Deal or No Deal

If you’re flying in coach, on a restricted, advance-purchase fare — as are most flyers — this promotion is simply a non-starter.

On the other hand, if you’re flying on a pricier ticket, the bonus miles — especially for premium economy and above — are definitely worth factoring into your Europe trip planning. They could be difference-makers.
