“Dallas… We have a problem…”

Contest ALERT*

$25 gift card (airline) to the first person who comments correctly on why I substituted ‘Dallas’ for ‘Houston’.

A few weeks back I posted about the upcoming AA Devaluation. And the day is almost here.

I highly encourage you to re-read that post, but as a reminder, here’s the chart:

page-0

Try not to wait to book anything in red (especially first class awards!) and do wait to book the awards in green until March 22.

PRO-TIP:

  • You can book 331 days from today (or March 21) and American will let you change your award dates at no extra cost (as long as the origin and destination remain the same).
  • The agents should not charge you the mileage difference of the old vs. new chart; if they try, ask for a supervisor, or hang up and call again.
  • Example: Today you book a business class ticket from New York to London for 50,000 and then after March 22, you want to change the date and the ticket to First Class, you should only be charged the old award chart rate of 62,500 not 80,000.

What will you book before the devaluation?

Not to be nit picky but AA’s headquarters is actually in Forth Wirth, TX. DFW is however a major hub for them.

    However, residents would refer to D and FW as one area. But yes, either response would have been acceptable, just his was first 🙂
