    American Airline question

    Advertisements



    has anybody done this to get the best price on american airlines. If you schedule your flight well in advance, you should be able to get anywhere from the US to GND for 30k air miles. Even if you do not have the miles put it on hold and purchase the ticket by buying more miles. for 30k airmiles, it costs $750 so a roundtrip anywhere from the US to GND will always be $750 (+ about $40 in tax) if you find available flights. $750 seems to be a lot cheaper than going directly through american airlines. This can go for any flight as well, just not to GND. Is this a common practice?

    I have done this before, but you are limited to purchasing either 40K or 60K miles per year and you don't get the miles on flight purchased with miles.
