    AA veterans, what is happening here? Promotion in the making? Some IT dude trying to get ahead of marketing? Simple website glitch?

    UPDATE: Nothing was able to be booked. Website has now been fixed.

    Interesting...selecting the 8.5k flight still charges you 15k miles though.

    Will have to check it out. Was looking yesterday and was only getting 30k Business/First, but then I was looking at summer travel.

    It still charges the normal 15K when you get to the check out screen. I also believe the glitch is gone now, btw. It's not like AA has a good history of honoring mistakes recently, just ask the Verizon glitch folks. ;)

    Also, why is this in the MR forum? :confused:

    Yea I was late...

    But I did notice AA finally added some more economy milesAAver awards for travel after April on these routes.

    It was pretty ridiculous when I checked last week and there were NONE after April 24th. Any month.

    Thought this forum was the most appropriate considering it may have been a mistake (redemption) rate. Mileage Runs/Mattress Runs/Travel Hacking

    Gotcha. I always view MR/TH as ways to get EQM/RDM, but I suppose it works.
