Just a friendly reminder: American Airlines’ award chart will be devalued on March 22. First and Business class are taking the biggest hit. If you have miles to burn, now might be a great time to use them. Awards can be placed on hold for five days. If you plan to use AA miles to fly on Etihad, you’ll have to connect with the Australia call center (61 – 2 – 9101 – 1948). Happy Travels!

(Examples: First class from Australia to Abu Dhabi will increase from 60k to 100k miles. First class from the US to Hong Kong increases from 67.5k to 110k miles. Business class from Europe to Asia rises from 52.5k to 75k miles.)
