Fiji Airways is releasing great award space for two passengers in economy from Los Angeles to Nadi, Fiji that you can book with American Airlines miles.

While Fiji is a year-round tropical destination, its high (and dry) season is April to October with June to September being the peak of that season.

During high season, Fiji Airways is not releasing Business Class award space, but economy award space is plentiful in April, May, September, and October.

For more information on Fiji, the miles that can book Fiji Airways, and where to search and book the awards, check out my recent post: How to Book a Trip to Fiji with Miles. This post just updates the award space picture.

I searched for two passengers from Los Angeles to Fiji (NAN) in April through October on alaskaair.com. (Fiji Airways’ only other route to the United States is to Honolulu. For people who live outside Los Angeles, you can connect there on American Airlines flights for no extra American Airlines miles.)

Economy Award Space

Days that say 40k + $19 have economy award space for two passengers. Award space is wide open in economy for April and May through June 5.

Then award space disappears for the rest of June, July, and August. It reappears September 1 and is plentiful until the end of October.Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 9.54.59 AM Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 9.55.09 AM

Business Class Award Space

The only Business Class award space for two passengers on Fiji Airways between April and October is May 6. Forget about Business Class space in high season.Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 9.53.43 AM

Getting the Miles

You can book Fiji Airways award space that you find on alaskaair.com by calling American Airlines at 800-882-8880. American Airlines waives the phone booking fee, since you can’t book Fiji Airways space on aa.com. American charges:

  • 37,500 miles one way per person in economy
  • 62,500 miles in Business Class if you miraculously find space during high season or fly during low season

American Airlines miles are super easy to get.

Some credit card offers in this post have expired, but they might come back. If they do they will appear –> Click here for the top current credit card sign up bonuses.

Right now the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® MasterCard® comes with 50,000 bonus miles after spending $3,000 in the first three months. The card also comes with other awesome benefits like a 10% rebate on miles used for award bookings.

The business version, the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World MasterCard®, also comes with 50,000 bonus miles after spending $3,000 in the first three months. This card comes with 2x miles on select business purchases and a 5% miles bonus on renewal. One person can have both cards.

We also know that The US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® will no longer be offered to new applicants as soon as the US Airways and American Airlines frequent flyer programs integrate in April 2015. That means that the chance to earn 50,000 bonus miles after first purchase on this card will disappear soon.

All US Airways miles not redeemed on the US Airways chart by the time of integration will become American Airlines miles. Getting all three cards now and meeting their spending requirements means you will have at least 156,000 American Airlines miles by April.

156,000 American Airlines miles are enough for two roundtrips to Fiji (150,000 miles) from the United States!
