I jumped on this right away when I saw fares as low as $650. I'm flying on a weekend, though, so paying a little more for that and also to stay on AA metal on the domestic segments for a shot at two upgrades. Knew about the Delta sale on Thursday morning and was waiting to see if AA would match. Per the flight deal they did, but not from SFO for Bay Area travelers, so I'll be flying out of Sacramento. I know another Bay Area flyer that is working on a trip right now from San Jose. Cities are limited and check out the two sections with departure airports here: http://www.theflightdeal.com/2015/0...urich-brussels-roundtrip-including-all-taxes/ My total fare was $688 SMF-LAX-LHR (MCE seat assigned--my preferred routing now)-BRU and coming back AMS-PHL-DFW-SMF. Just have the one US segment AMS-PHL. I'm out of systemwides until the new ones come in after this trip so the MCE seat was a priority. Will cross 100K with this trip with 3 more international trips already booked through year end. One new thing I did notice, when selecting seats, is that the US flight AMS=PHL charges elites $99 for a small section of seats up front in coach. I'm right behind there in a section that is not surcharged. Never ran into that on AA metal as an elite.
