No more vacation packages?

There used to be a link on AS homepage, but it is not there anymore, and I cannot find anywhere to book packages. Has anyone else noticed this, and do you think they did away with them?

Edited to add*** I found this under Vacation Packages....

"This year, we’re saying a fond farewell to our vacation package program. If you've already booked a vacation package with us, be sure to complete that trip by December 31, 2019."

This kind of sucks. I used it quite a bit.

Lol, because I edited it within 30 seconds of posting it. I do that a lot, fingers quicker than brain.

I will especially miss that 1500 mile bonus I got for every booking. Before SAVER fares, I was always booking packages instead of just flights, adding a throw away hotel for 1 night, and collecting the bonus. Before anyone jumps all over me for fraud, I seriously doubt that is the reason they did away with packages, they could just have easily done away with the bonus. I also always called the hotel so that they could resell the room, collecting twice for it.
