How to Book an Award flight in First on American Airlines JFK-LAX flight

American Airlines perhaps best known flight is there Transatlantic flight from JFK-LAX operated by a A321 T in a 3 Class Cabin. The problem is that these flights often price above $1700 round trip in Business Class. Since American Airlines has no competing One World Partners on this route, they never offer a MileSAAver Award, only AAnytime Awards. If you look for awards from JFK-FAT you can often find an Award for only 30k each way that routes through LAX. So you can book to Fresno and just fly to Los Angeles. Although American Airlines is not the Best Way to get to Los Angeles in Business Class, I would recommend booking through Jet Blue or Delta where if you fly on Saturdays and Occasionally Tuesdays you can catch prices for around $1,000 Round trip in Business and if you want to fly Economy One Way and Business the other, prices can dip as low as $700 Round Trip. Following The Points Guy Mileage Valuations the 60k Miles Required for the Round Trip Business Class, Those miles are worth about $900. That’s a pretty good deal but you have to work around the MileSAAver Dates where with Jet Blue and Delta you have flexibility and you earn Miles.
