    "American is proud of our new AAdvantage award booking tool, which makes it easier for our AAdvantage members to redeem miles," said Kurt Stache, President -- AAdvantage® Marketing Programs. "With the successful launch of the new tool, we are giving members the opportunity to win a share of one million AAdvantage bonus miles that they can redeem for travel through the new site."

    The new, innovative and user-friendly AAdvantage booking tool on AA.com was developed with extensive customer input. It includes features that provide AAdvantage members with virtually all the information needed to redeem an AAdvantage award for travel on American Airlines, American Eagle, and the AmericanConnection® airlines, including a calendar that shows award availability over a four-week period.

    To access the new AAdvantage booking and information tool, visitors to AA.com simply click on the "Redeem AAdvantage Miles" link on the AA.com home page. After entering the city and dates of travel, customers then have the option of searching for award seat availability over a four-week period with the new "Dates Flexible" option.

    Color-coded, easy-to-use tabs allow customers to select the type of AAdvantage award they wish to redeem -- ranging from economy class MileSAAver(SM) awards up to the first class AAnytime® awards -- and easily see which dates are available for each of the award levels.
