AA.com Now Showing Award Availability For 3 Partner Airlines!

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

AA.com added the ability to search for and book awards on Alaska Airlines not long ago and has now added the ability to search for and book awards on British Airways and Hawaiian Airlines.  As always, fuel surcharges do apply for travel on British Airways.

AA.com’s search calendar makes it much easier to find award flights than BA.com does for their own flights, so this is definitely a welcome addition.  Hopefully they will add the ability to book all partner airline flights in the near future, such as world-class carriers Cathay Pacific and Qantas.

Sample Alaska (AS) and Hawaiian (HA) flights on AA.com from S. Diego to Honolulu.

Sample Hawaiian (HA) flight on AA.com From Sydney to JFK via Honolulu.

Sample British Airways (BA) flight on AA.com from Orlando to the Maldives via London.

Or you can see AA logic: Where a flight on 03/17 from Honolulu to Seattle costs 22,500 miles but a flight from Honolulu to London via Seattle on 03/17 costs 20,000 miles and you’re also free to stopover in Seattle for as long as you want.  I discussed this more at length in this post on Hawaiian Airlines flying nonstop from JFK-Honolulu starting in June.

dude, when you post, your tweets come in immediately; great for immedicacy but not great when it’s after midnight and your phone goes off…

You can tell twitter which hours of the night not to text you of updates:


so change your setings on twitter not to send you mesages at night

Do the tweets get texted later or if you miss them you miss them?


Dan ur my kind of a Guy love the night hours


We only do nights

Dan keep it up 24 6!!!!


When was AS added?
(Btw, night tweets are np!)


whens LAN coming to the AA website?


Dan, is there anyway do book on AA.com using BA avios points for a domestic aa flight?
or only thru ba.com



You could also view AA award availability for say JFK – HKG on CX or JFK – TLV by using Qantas website. Just sign up with Qantas frequent flyer and view award availability.


No, but availability for nonstop AA flights should be exactly the same on ba.com.

Of course, but it’s just not as convenient as on AA.com.


Dan does it show avalibility on ba to israel via lhr


Hawaiian availability on rewards can be lousy intra-island. Strange considering they have so many flights every day
