2016 American Airlines AAdvantage Award Chart Changes

Posted By PointStrategist on In the News - There are quite a few changes coming to the Americans Airlines AAdvantage program on March 22, 2016.  In this article, we’re going to focus on the American Airlines AAdvantage award chart. The good: American has added a short haul reward (less than 500 miles). Redemptions in the Main Cabin and Business/First will be 40% less. US domestic flight conversions remain unchanged. Flights to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America will be 14%-17% lower (in two cabin aircraft). The Bad: In a three cabin aircraft, First Class seats cost 41% additional miles on average than in 2015. Trips to Canada and Alaska are 20%-69% higher. Journeys to South America(1) are 14%-38% more. Asia and South Pacific premium cabin redemptions have increased by 20%-63%. We strongly suggest that anyone planning on booking a premium class seat to do so before the March 22 cutoff.  It will save you thousands of points.
