Bonus Miles For Premium Oneworld Transatlantic Travel

While summer is a busy travel season, it’s fairly slow for business travel. As a result, it’s not unusual to see airlines offer promotions to incentivize full fare and premium cabin passengers.

American is offering bonus miles for roundtrip travel between the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.

Here are the basic terms of the promotion:

  • Valid for travel on American Airlines, US Airways, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia or OpenSkies
  • Valid for travel between May 12 and August 31, 2014

Through this promotion you can earn 5,000-25,000 bonus miles per roundtrip, as follows:

  • First or Business Class: 25,000 bonus miles

Ultimately these promotions probably aren’t enough reason to switch business to oneworld, but if you’re flying anyway or were undecided on which carrier to book, they’re definitely worth keeping in mind.

  1. Meanwhile, QF decides to introduce absurd “peak” surcharges depending on the day you decide to travel.

  2. Would be interesting to see if FT wizards can come up with something to take advantage of this.

  3. Finding award space (in F or J) on AA’s 77W (from LHR to the US) is very tough this Nov, will AA open up saver awards and it gets closer to Nov?

  4. @ Tony — For what it’s worth, American is REALLY stingy with premium cabin transatlantic award space nowadays, so I wouldn’t count on it. You never know, though, since November isn’t exactly peak travel season.

  5. We want to give it a try, but as it looks LOTS of BA and US space, but not wanting to pay fuel surcharge.

  6. Do you think US will offer this as well? Would be nice to stack with the US fly oneworld partners bonus offer.

  7. Worth pointing out that you need to have a US-based account to benefit from this offer, Lucky – despite BA matching it they’re not offering it to their UK customers 🙁
