MileSAAver Award Ticket Availability: Business Class to London on American Airlines
There is a ton of available award space on American Airlines Business Class flights to London from several major hubs, including New York, Charlotte and Philadelphia. For 57,500 AA miles you can fly business class each way. A non-saver business class award ticket from JFK to LHR is 110,000 miles. Keep in mind that you must select American operated flights only in order to avoid fuel surcharges imposed on partner flights.
Award Ticket Availability
Availability is really wide-open in both directions until May and very sparse in the summer months. There’s also pretty decent availability in September.
The same ticket would set you back $1,577 at the bare minimum. As you can see below, the average is over $3,000 one-way. This means you’ll be redeeming your AA miles for 2.74 cents each or over 5 cents each on the high end. That’s a great value! The current sign-up bonus on several AAdvantage cards is 60k miles, making the bonus offer worth $1,644.
If you have some extra AA miles to burn, this is definitely a great use for them. You would be hard pressed to find better availability at a better price to London. Book fast if you’re interested!
