As I noted in the "Good Deal" Premium Fares thread, also available from WAS. Routing via DFW is also possible. Can anyone confirm refundability? That part of the fare rules is pretty tough to decipher...

Comes up as "Business Flexible" on aa.com, so it's refundable.

Wow, great deal. Tried pricing from SEA and no where near this good of a deal. Even nicer for those NY people getting the double miles as well.

No mention about cancellation on the fare rules. We should assume that is fully refundable?

Haven't looked for it elsewhere yet.

Is there anyway to make aa.com sort the fares by Business class?
I even changed my preferences to Business fares and the darn aa.com still insists to only look for super saver economy fares under "dates flexible" and does not provide any option to sort by other fare classes.

Spanish AA site shows as default a 7 days range. I don't know if that's what your looking for. For setting "Flexible dates" you have to choose the spanish "Alrededor de estas fechas" and search for Clase Business y Primera.
It will quote the tickets in Euro.
