AA: BOS - SEA RT $275.60 7,362 miles 3.74 CPM

This is the first mileage run I am posting on this board. There is plenty of availability mid-January to early February. The mileage total includes all 500 mile minimum segments. All flight segments are on mainline AA metal.

For example, on January 23-24, 2016

BOS - PHL AA 632 5:30 AM - 6:59 AM Jan 23
PHL - PHX AA 707 8:20 AM - 11:52 AM Jan 23
PHX - SEA AA 413 2:50 PM - 4:56 PM Jan 23
SEA - PHX AA 442 5:59 PM - 9:43 PM Jan 23
PHX - PHL AA 2026 11:40 PM - 5:56 AM Jan 23
PHL - BOS AA 1818 8:15 AM - 9:37 AM Jan 24

Thanks! I've found SEA-DFW-BOS a great value in miles/$. And usually get upgraded at 100Hr window as EXP. Found a nice same day trip in early Jan @267.60 and will likely book it.

Thanks, this is an awesome routing! Combined with a cheap DTW-BOS routing I cobbled together a 5,000 mile DTW-ORD-BOS-PHL-PHX-SEA I needed to travel anyways all in one day for $193.

Just tried to book this

Tried booking on AA.com and it priced out perfectly in multi-city but when I selected it to book it, I got the dreaded "the price of this itinerary has changed since you selected your flight(s)" message. Argh! It's now pricing at $349.60 or .05/EQM which isn't horrible but not as fantastic either.

PDXAA, I would try entering the itinerary into Google Flights and then clicking on the link transfer you to the AA website for ticketing.

If you're confident in the dates and don't mind booking via 3rd party, I've had luck in booking on Orbitz and still getting the lower price.

I had to feed all three segments into AA's multi-city search to get it correct.

I HATE that message. Why can't they fix their website? I understand they don't want to sell certain fares cobbled together via multi-city itineraries, but they ought to just not price is that way in the first place

I don't like booking via third party sites b/c I usually use AA gift cards obtained at a discount on Ebay and reseller sites.
