    American Airlines Offers AAdvantages for Father's Day

    FORT WORTH, Texas, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Fathers are arguably the more difficult parent to shop for, especially when it comes to Father's Day. Sunday, June 21, is right around the corner, and American Airlines has several cost effective and unique gifts ideas to make Dad feel like he's on top of the world.

    Maybe your father wants take a trip, but has not expressed where he wants to go. No problem! A good solution is the purchase of an AA Gift Card for a short, long, or spur-of-the-moment vacation. Dad can use an AA Gift Card to purchase an airline ticket on American, American Eagle or AmericanConnection. Gift Cards are available for purchase on American's website, www.aa.com (you can even send them electronically), at AA Travel Centers, in Admirals Club lounges, in thousands of retail, drug, and grocery stores, or by calling (800) 677-9555. AA Gift Cards are available in any denomination between $50 and $1,500 and have no expiration dates or fees. Further information can be found at www.aa.com/giftcard.

    Do you think dad would like to enjoy a more relaxing atmosphere while waiting in terminal prior to boarding his flight? If so, perhaps he'd enjoy the ambiance of the Admirals Club lounge, where he can relax away from the hustle and bustle of the terminal, check his e-mail, make seat changes for his flight, catch up on the news, and much more. A One-Day Pass or even an annual membership to the Admirals Club is another gift idea. A One-Day Pass costs just $50 and can be used at any of American's 44 lounges worldwide. More information can be found at www.aa.com/daypass.

    Since your Father has shared so much with you, maybe you should consider sharing your frequent flyer miles with him through American's shareAAmiles program. This program allows AAdvantage members to transfer up to 15,000 miles to your father's AAdvantage miles account. Miles can be used toward air travel, car rentals, hotel stays, and even magazine subscriptions. For more details, visit www.aa.com/shareaamiles.com.

    If your preference is shopping online for a Father's Day gift, then you should consider the AAdvantage eShopping mall at www.aa.com/eshopping. You'll find more than 250 name-brand merchants from electronics to hardware, which offer you a specific number of AAdvantage miles for every dollar you spend purchasing your father's gift on their website. This efficient shopping tool offers products with access to the latest coupons and promotions from the mall's many merchants.

    Lastly, if you've have procrastinated, check out the last-minute specials on AA.com. This site offers affordable package deals for weekend travel (including air and ground transportation arrangements) to multiple destinations. These packages can be found at www.aa.com/lastminutepackages. If your preference is to book your father a last minute trip without the ground arrangements, then check out NetSAAver fares at www.aa.com/netsaaverfares. Either way, Dad will be pleased with his Father's Day gifts, even if you give him a gift card and let him decide where to go.
