Earn Double AAdvantage Miles For Travel To Germany

I apparently missed this promotion a couple of weeks back, though American is offering double redeemable AAdvantage miles for travel between the US and Germany through April 15, 2015.

Earn-Double-AAdvantage-Miles

The promotion is valid for travel on American, US Airways, and airberlin, on the following routes:

Earn-Double-AAdvantage-Miles-1

The promotion does have some fare class restrictions, as only the following fare classes are eligible for double AAdvantage miles:

  • American Airlines: Business Class fares booked in J, R, D or I; Economy Class fares booked in Y, B, H, K, M, L, V, G, S, N, O or Q
  • US Airways: Business Class fares booked in J, R, D or I; Economy Class fares booked in Y, B, H, K, M, L, V, G, S, N, O or Q on US Airways operated flights
  • airberlin: Business Class fares booked in J, C, D or I; Economy Class fares booked in Y, B, H, K, M, L, V, S, N, Q, O, G, P or E on airberlin operated flights

While there are fare class restrictions, this isn’t very restrictive. A vast majority of fare types are eligible for the double miles offer, even discounted economy ones. It’s worth noting that codeshares marketed by one of the other airlines participating in the promotion are also eligible for the double miles offer (for example, you can be on a flight operated by airberlin but marketed by US Airways).

Airberlin-A330
Even travel on airberlin is eligible for double AAdvantage miles

Registration is required prior to travel using promotion code GER15.

Bottom line

This is a really nice promotion for those booking paid tickets to Germany. While historically American has had a weak presence to Germany, this has improved recently:

Comments

  1. Is this offer valid for DM members as well? If not, I wonder if this will challenge your thought on the day the programs will combine, since this offer expires on April 15th

  2. It’s really too sad that this only applies to AA, not USDM. I have travel coming up that I booked with US to Germany and am crediting it to my USDM (Chairman) account. 100% CP bonus pretty much equates what I will get with my AA (no status)… If it works also for the USDM account, that’d be awesome.

  3. @ Danray — As of now neither of the two routes to Germany has the new product, but I’m sure they will eventually.

  4. @ Jonathan — Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be. I guess since the program is being discontinued soon I guess they’re not bothering with promotions anymore.
