AA, along with its transatlantic JV partners British Airways and Iberia has been offering a bonus mileage program for transatlantic flights on BA, IB or AA for a while now. On the table is the opportunity to earn 25K bonus miles on the first eligible TATL flight, 35K on the second TATL flight and 45K on the third and onwards…The initial promo was valid till end of 2011, but now the offer is extended to 15 March 2012.
As earlier expected, it looks like AA is churning out miles like crazy and making sure it rewards loyal flyers enough to carry them along till they are out of the bankruptcy!
While the opportunity for economy flyers is limited, since it is valid only on full fare economy tickets (booked in Y,B,H) but if you are a business class or a first class traveller, you should scoop these miles right away on your next TATL trip to Europe/UK. Here are all the fare classes which will earn you the bonus miles:
**Includes First Class, Business Class or full-fare Economy Class fares booked in F, A, J, R, D, I, Y, B or H on American Airlines operated flights; on British Airways operated flights, fares booked in First Class, Club World, World Traveller Plus or full-fare World Traveler: F, A, J, R, C, D, I, W, E, T, Y, B or H; on Iberia operated flights, fares booked in Business Class or full-fare Economy Class: J, C, D, R, I or Y.
Do remember, you need to pre register for this offer, and here are more details…
