    American Airlines Sets the Table for Spring and Summer European Travel From Boston

    BOSTON, May 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- What a time to fly to London or Paris on American Airlines! Beginning May 1, American, a founding member of the oneworld® Alliance, is adding a third daily nonstop flight to London from Logan Airport, plus the resumption of its seasonal service to Paris.

    And that's not all - a 25,000 to 50,000 AAdvantage bonus mile offer is available, plus an AAdvantage double elite-status qualifying miles offer.

    -- Until June 30, AAdvantage members who complete round-trip travel between the United States and the UK on an eligible First Class or Business Class ticket will earn 50,000 bonus miles. Members traveling on select Economy Class fares will earn 25,000 bonus miles. With 25,000 bonus miles for qualifying tickets in Economy Class, AAdvantage members will have enough miles for a free* round-trip MileSAAver® award in Economy Class within the Continental U.S. and Canada. With 50,000 bonus miles for travel in First or Business Class, customers can book a free* round-trip MileSAAver award for travel in Economy Class from North America to Europe. -- Customers can also earn double elite-status qualifying miles when they book travel, and fly on American Airlines, American Eagle, and AmericanConnection through June 15. That puts customers on the fast track to reaching AAdvantage Gold®, AAdvantage Platinum®, or AAdvantage Executive Platinum® status. The benefits of elite status include mileage bonuses, upgrade privileges and various other perks, depending on a customer's elite status level.

    Both offers require registration prior to travel. To register and obtain complete offer details, visit www.aa.com/offers.

    "Travelers will find that a trip on American to London or Paris can be as pleasing to their AAdvantage mileage balance as the sights and sounds of those two unforgettable cities can be to their senses," said Charlie Schewe, American's Regional Sales Director for the Northeast. "Put simply - fly American to London, and with the AAdvantage bonus miles earned, you can start planning your next trip to another fantastic worldwide destination."
