Fairly wide availability (although AS is only operating one flight/day between EWR and LAX) from January until early May. Good deal - books into I, recliners.

You could speculatively book in Q2 or Q3 when AS should be a oneworld member. Over 2000 miles would mean 140 TPs each way...
of course this is dependent on the oneworld/AS schedule not changing which I believe means a 3/31? entry.

Thats a meh return for tier points. A better return if youre not gonna go AS is EQD on AA

To be clear, jfkeze was talking about BA tier points, 600 of which gets you BA Silver, equivalent to OW Sapphire. $270 for 140 TPs, or almost one quarter of the way to BA Silver (the four BA flights required notwithstanding) is a very solid deal IMO.

I understood. You can often get closer to $1/tp on domestic AA routes

With the 75% COS, this is actually a decent EQM rate of $.05 for MP accrual. But yeah, the seat is okay one way for a transcon but maybe not the best for a b2b trip/run.

Even less... SJC-PHX-DFW-LAX-DFW-PHX-SJCfor $164 and collect 240 Tier Points or 68 cents a TP..



But if actually wanting to fly transcon, this isn't that bad...

Filter with OW only and select the itinerary with multiple segments.
