American 2, 2, 2 for one

You have to be a lawyer to figure out how to actually cash in on American Airlines’ buy 2 get 1 free offer. The deal is: fly twice to California or Florida from New York or Boston before April 15, and get one ticket anywhere AA flies. There are plenty of catches, though: you have to be an AA member, register before making the flights on their website, make sure the flight is a non-stop flight, fly on a published fare, and that the flight returns to the same airport that the flight originated (well, it says “same co-terminal”; I don’t know what that means). The award ticket has blackout dates, is in class “T”, which is bottom basement Economy, is non-upgradable, has a $100 penalty for changes, and must be used by April 15, 2005. That being said, it’s not a bad deal. I’m going to try to do it with P–.

  1. Was this the same deal that the WB news said was best to get if you call after 2am? Geez, these airlines make you jump through hoops just to travel.

  2. Funny but United Airlines just spammed my mailbox with the identical promo. Tried to make it work but couldn’t justify it. Maybe if times were better …

    Happy Chinese New Year folks!!!
