USAirways Business Saver Award Space Between Philadelphia And Tel Aviv Is Back For Summer And Fall Travel!

25

Update: DEAD!

——————————————————–

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

AA.com and USAirways.com are showing tons of saver business class avaialbility between Philadelphia and Tel Aviv from July through December 2015.

USAirways business class features a 1-2-1 configuration with direct aisle access for all passengers.

Typically there its rare to find more than 1 business class seat on this route, but right now many dates have multiple seats open.

Award space isn’t as wide open as it was a couple of weeks ago, but it’s far more than normal.

This is a glitch in the fare booking class as U class just recently switched from being a coach booking class to a business booking class. When you book your business award the confirmation page will show U class/economy. However it will charge you the business class rate and you will be seated in business class and U class is now in business class.

Space to many European cities is excellent as well.

AA.com charges 67.5K miles one-way/135K round-trip to Tel Aviv.
USAirways.com charges 120K miles round-trip (115K for cardholders) and doesn’t sell one-way awards.

AA allows 5 days holds and USAir allows 3 days holds.

You can transfer Starpoints to either airline, 20K Starpoints becomes 25K miles. That transfer can take a few days but AA.com allows for a 5 day award hold. Those points can be earned on a card like the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.

American requires that the name on the Starwood account (or at least the last name) match in order to do a transfer. However USAirways allows transfers from anyone’s Starwood account. You can transfer points between Starwood accounts if the home address on both members Starwood accounts are the same, but that transfer can take a few days as well.

Post what you book!

What about economy?

Loves Dan

Dan

If i have a USairways award ticket for October and i find a better flight after US/AA complete their merger do you think i can switch the ticket without the $150 fee?

Is there any easy way to search for non stop saaver awards in biz class?

Dan

@Loves Dan:
No clue.

@SrulyP:
Sure, search PHL-TLV on AA.com and toggle it to nonstop.

Nathan

Is there a way to use avios to book these?

Dan

@Nathan:
Sure, but you’ll get slammed with over $800 in fuel surcharges that way.

aa

what makes it 150 dollars more w US Air?

Nathan

I am trying to do this on my iPad. Picked dates for 3 adults that said 60k each way and on the pricing screen it now shows 840k total. Something isn’t right

Nathan

@Nathan: went thru all the way to the last page on a new search and it still shows 840k being taken. What am I doing wrong?

Barclays takes so long to post US Air bonus

How long does it usually take?
