Also available on AA.com. Although sometimes the flights don't price at what the initial screens show...but that's AA.com.

Jan 31-Feb 4, all AA/AE metal, some force overnights in DFW or elsewhere. $450 ish.

Welcome to Flyertalk Paul5795 and what a great first post!

Now if only I knew that the AA miles would work for my status, I'd jump on this somehow...

This reminds me of the days when I first joined FT. I did some PHX-PHL-MUC runs for ~$420. And I'll never forget PHX-SFO-FRA for ~$350.
