Cheap Tickets on American

Post by Kel » Wed Dec 04, 2019 5:26 pm

I stumbled across a real bargain on American Airlines. They have Mileage tickets for half price. I bought tickets from Santiago to Dallas and back to fly just before Christmas for 15000 miles each way.

Low-cost mileage seats usually aren't available near Christmas at all. At other times, when they are available they typically cost 30,000 miles each way.

I checked all the way to July and the same cheap mileage seats are available.

This is Probably is because everyone decided to go someplace safe like Cuba instead of Santiago for Christmas.

I have been flying back and forth from Chile about every other month since May 2019 on American Airlines. I average about 650$ round trip to Chicago. I have noticed that round trip to Miami and Dallas are about the same price.

I'm horrible at finding affordable airfare! Do you all go through an agency or service like kayak, google flights, etc?

I almost always start by searching on skyscanner. They seem to have the best deals and your search options are unlimited. I just booked a flight for next week round trip Santiago to Chicago for 640$.

I use Kiwi's search engine, as I find its features to be slightly better than Skyscanner's. I only shop around different sites once I've found the date that has prices within what I'm willing to pay.
