End of Year 10K Mileage Run on AA

A question to the many sage AA travelers on this wonderful message board. As of today 10-19-05 and based on scheduled trips for the rest of 2005 I think I will be short of hitting EXP for the year by about 10,000 flown miles. I am looking for a good mileage run on can make on a weekend in late November or sometime in December, best case leave Sat. and return Sun. if needed I could squeeze a Friday or a Monday if I must. Been looking alot but haven't found the right combination of miles, weekend times and prices.

I live in Indianapolis so my preferred departure airport is IND.

I would welcome any suggestion you may have!
Thanks!!!

Try Paris

Check Paris out. I needed about that much for Platinum last year. Found Paris for about $400. It looks like about $500 now. Hope that is enough miles for you.

I'm doing Thanksgiving in Japan! Tho on the long trans-Pac and Trans-Pond service you gotta watch out for fares that are no-miles and non-upgrade-capable!

Not as sexy as an international run and only available mid-week, you can get a decent value for a IND-PHX run routed through SEA both ways. $164 all in, 6645 miles, 2.47 cents/EQM.
