Update: American has now fixed this glitch!
For the past few days American has completely wiped out saver award space on many of their routes. As in there is no saver award space at all for any dates.
This doesn’t affect all routes, but it affects lots of routes that previous had very good saver award space.
Hopefully this is a bug, but American doesn’t seem to be in any rush to fix it or even let the public know about it. This also affects partner award bookings like BA Avios as they can only book awards based on saver award space.
American has been a mess ever since the USAirways merger, but this is a new low point.
For example if you limit the advanced award search to American flights only (in order to avoid fuel surcharges for BA flights), there is nothing nonstop available at the saver level from NYC to London for any dates:
Nothing in saver is available nonstop from Cleveland to NYC for any dates:
Nothing in saver is available nonstop from Pittsburgh to NYC for any dates:
Nothing in saver is available nonstop from Chicago to Dallas for any dates:
Nothing in saver is available nonstop from Cleveland to Dallas for any dates:
What other routes do you see without any nonstop saver award space available for any dates?
