Planning a trip across the pond before the end of the year?

Via The Points Guy, you can earn up to 30,000 bonus American Airlines miles on trans-Atlantic flights booked and flown through December 11, 2016.  You’ll earn bonus miles when you fly American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, or OpenSkies, and credit flights to your American Airlines account.

You must register for the promotion.  And most paid flights, like certain coach fares, Premium Economy, Business Class, or First Class tickets qualify.

Through December 11, 2016, you can earn up to 30,000 bonus American Airlines miles when you fly between North America and Europe on American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, or OpenSkies.

To register for the promotion, go to aa.com/offers and enter the code “NAF16.”  Or go here and login with your American Airlines frequent flyer account information.

Most paid tickets will qualify, except a few discount coach fares on American Airlines and Iberia.  Check out the terms and conditions for details.

Award flights will NOT qualify.

Is This a Good Deal?

If you’re already planning a trip to Europe this fall with a paid ticket, this is a decent deal.

But I wouldn’t go out of my way to book a ticket with this promotion, because you’ll have to spend a lot on a First Class ticket to earn the maximum number of bonus miles.

Coach tickets only earn between 2,000 and 5,000 bonus American Airlines miles for round-trip flights.

But I always recommend signing-up for promotions like this, even if you don’t have a trip planned.  Because it doesn’t take a lot of time, and you never know when you might get a chance to travel!

  1. Very interesting. I have been to Europe in fall and it’s nice. No crowds

  2. Thanks for a very timely heads-up; going round-trip on Finnair paid ticket next week!

  3. We are flying to Europe on Thursday. I was all excited until a friend pointed out that tickets purchased prior to 9/9/16 do not qualify. It’s stated in the T&C. 🙁

  4. @Napoleon Streisand – Indeed! Sometimes it pays to travel in the off-season. 😉

    @Lili – Glad you found the post helpful!
