For up to four travelers (and possibly more), FCF’s research team has discovered off the chart savings right now with American Airlines. We’ve seen Business Class mileage award rates as low as 156,000 miles for a round-trip ticket. If you’re planning to travel to Europe, now is the perfect time to try to snag this deal with American.

Sample Savings via American Express and Citi’s points-to-miles transfer partnership with Cathay Pacific: Chicago to London’s normal/everyday price can often be 220,000 when using American miles but if you use Amex Points partner Cathay Pacific miles the cost can be as low as 122,000 miles.

SAMPLE SAVINGS FROM U.S. TO Europe IN Business Class:

The published Business Class fare on American Airlines’ Chicago to London route is $4,122 r/t; through the Cathay Pacific’s American Express partnership purchase strategy, you can pay $3,117 r/t (includes about $67 in award tax), a savings of $1,005 (24%).

Everybody knows how frequently airfares change (some estimates claim that there are up to 500,000 fare changes daily). Because that’s a few too many for First Class Flyer to keep up with, FCF cannot guarantee that all fares discussed will be available when you go to make a booking. Also, for the sake of quick and easy “executive summary” format, all fare rules and restrictions can’t possibly be included. Fares quoted usually include the average taxes and fees for the routes in the chart.
