On April 5, American will launch 10 new flights to and from Los Angeles. As often happens with new flights, the airline is offering bonus miles to call attention to the services, and to help fill the planes.
Between April 5 and June 30, AAdvantage members can earn double miles on American and American Eagle flights between Los Angeles and Albuquerque, Boise, El Paso, Houston, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, and Tucson.
During the same period, program members can earn triple miles for first- or business-class flights to Shanghai, and double miles for coach.
The bonuses may be earned an unlimited number of times.
Registration is required to earn the bonus miles, using promotion code LAX2X for the domestic flights, LAPVG for the Shanghai flights.
Deal or No Deal
Double miles, for almost three months. Nice!
Better still—because you should never overpay to earn miles, even double miles—American is offering attractive introductory pricing, from $54 each way, for tickets on the new domestic flights booked by April 12 and completed by May 25. Sale prices for the Shanghai flights are as low as $399 each way. (As always, be sure to comparison shop before buying.)
