    Hey, South Florida! It's Time to Find a Friend (Or Be One)

    If you live in South Florida and like to travel, American Airlines advises you to immediately find a friend, spouse, significant other, person of interest, casual acquaintance, or heck, just grab someone off the street. Here's why...

    American Airlines and its regional affiliate, American Eagle, are offering free** companion tickets for travel this fall from Miami and Fort Lauderdale to select destinations in the Caribbean, The Bahamas and Latin America.

    And, on top of that, we're offering fares of just $109-159* each way for the paying passenger (when purchased on American's website, AA.com) -- the companion travels free** -- meaning two can travel round-trip to an exciting or exotic destination for a price that's terrific even for just one person. Here are the highlights of American's South Florida fare sale and free** companion ticket offer.
