Putting this one up as fast as possible so I haven’t checked all of the different configurations, but currently out of Dallas you can fly to Japan on AA’s 787-9 via LAX for just 45k AA miles. Typically this is 60k, but more poignant is the fact that AA rarely makes their space available. If you price is out of LA directly you won’t see the space. I hate to say hit…but AA is making their new calendar function a must use to find these advantageous pricing schemes on married segments.
The 787-9 features seating similar to the 772 fit with Super Diamonds – arguably AA’s best business class seat.
Here you can see the calendar function Jan/Feb – search more dates as I just got this up quickly
