I just got an email advertising a 20th anniversary sale for the oneworld RTW product. No details on the actual discount, even when clicking through the the RTW booking engine. The T&Cs are pretty strict.

Travel period must start between January 1 and March 31, 2020
Round-the-world sale applies to Business and Economy class only.
Travel must be completed by April 30, 2020

Just got the same email. No details on the discount though. Typically, RTW fares are hard to justify, especially when taking into account discounted premium fares which are routinely available today. If the deal is good it might be good for a one-off.

Actual Link?

Curious, is there a link? I haven't received the e-mail myself and there's nothing on AA.com that I can find.

Thanks.

Here's the URL: https://rtw.oneworld.com/rtw/. It won't fully load for me in Firefox.

It took many minutes to load in Firefox, then picking cities was very slow and it was unable to pick flights. It never loaded in Chrome. Both of these on a computer. On my phone I got device not supported on both browsers.

When I click the link in Chrome, I get a oneworld web page but it stayed shaded and never finishes loading.

IT issue obviously. I wonder what an around the world J fare would cost.

That's funny because the regular reservations wouldn't be able to do an RTW ticket. Try the RTW desk at 1-800-247-3247.

Phew, I thought that I had broken the RTW site.

I tried to select "balloon" instead of economy or business after selecting a start/end range of 80 days and it doesn't seem to want to load anymore.
