AA Vacations is always running promotions, before this Asia the promo it was South America (ended at the end of September) and before that it was Europe (ended at the end of June). Hopefully we will see Europe in the next couple of days, but they don't usually runs 2 similar promos at the same time.

anyone know if we can select preferred/econ plus seats after we book? Looks like it only lets you choose the crap seats.

If you have the appropriate status. Otherwise youíd have to pay extra.

Do these have to be credited to AA or can they be credited, probably without the bonus, to British Airways?

Got a few spare days coming up in LA and tempted by one of these (although maybe not on a 787 in economy even if it might be JAL metal should I go to, or via, Tokyo). Some flights seem to head east from LAX to DFW before changing planes for a 14hr trip west.

I believe you would earn on BA as you would earn with any other AA flight. According to the fare code and with no added bonus.

Will the earning through this fare be still valid with the new AA fares EQM and EQD annoucement??

"Q, O and B fares will only earn 25% of miles flown (down from 50%) and qualifying dodllars-earning falls to 5% (from 10%)"

You will earn the reduced rates if you fly after January 1st, 2019.

Well, for those of you in So Cal there are still some good deals before the end of the year when the special fares go away.

There is SAN-MIA-DFW-PEK-DFW-SAN available. from 11/28-12/2. $488 with free shuttle to/from airport to hotel and free breakfast. I like this one because its a redeye to Miami so you don't waste the day.

You can also make it from SAN-PVG is pretty much the same fashion on the same dates. As a Platinum you'd get over 40k RDM. Purdy good. And the flight is out of SAN. No offense to you LA folks but I'm tired of driving through that misery of traffic doom.
