    As a reminder, these awards are 35k r/t if booked ONLY on US metal in Jan-Feb, and 30k with the credit card 5k reduction.
    These calendars are for 4 pax in economy!

    PHL-FRA:

    And for PHL-MUC:

    I've also checked BRU and LHR with similar results. This is certainly better than last year, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't this open at 330 days out.
    Of course, the hardest part is getting to PHL, but with trans-atl availability this good, it is very doable from most cities with more than a few flights per day.

    *Edit* - Finally, a reminder that with the current buy miles promo, you can outright buy these awards for under $700 with taxes.

    That means with AA miles, you only need to pay 20k each way, right? ;)

    Not sure if I'm thinking of the same thing, but yes from PHL, and slightly less than 30k for anywhere within a 1,152 mi radius, give or take.

    No, you're not thinking the same thing. US offpeak to Europe in Y is 35k US miles r/t. AA offpeak to Europe is 20k AA miles each way (40k r/t), with a wider window (October to May). ;) So these awards should be available for AA folks for purchase at a small mileage premium.
