American AAdvantage MileSAAver Award Availability To Hawaii This Summer

Yes, Virginia, there is American AAdvantage MileSAAver Award Availability to Hawaii this summer for last minute travel; not only is there Economy MileSAAver availability, I found four, yep, you read that right, count them, 4; four, as in uno, dos, tres, quatro seats.

Four seats to Hawaii for July travel using economy MileSAAver awards.  SCORE!  Oh and I even found 4 seats in First Class to Sydney for Business/First MileSAAver award of 67,500 each.  But that’s for another blog post…

I used travel dates for next week, leaving LAX on July 7 and returning to LAX on July 14.   The entire month of July has availability for MileSAAver awards at only 22,500 miles per person.

Yes, it can be done and I’m not even using my special EXP powers, calling in a favor, secret decoder ring, or even mentioning my giraffe.

Search for yourself on the American Airlines website and you’ll see lots of availability.  Hawaii is practically wide open this summer, especially those of you in Los Angeles, leaving from LAX.

From San Diego, it’s a bit limited, but there are still seats.

So if you’ve been procrastinating on your summer travel plans, wait no further and book your award travel to Hawaii now.  Or wherever your heart desires or American has flights.

While some bloggers may frown on using MileSAAver awards to Hawaii for West Coast residents, when you have school aged kids, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and travel during the peak season.  And while I do have some concern about using miles when off season I can find roundtrip flights for $250 – $325, the timing works for us.  And isn’t that what it’s all about – earning/collecting miles so you can travel when and how you want?

We’re headed to Hawaii, now I just need to find accommodations….
