Update February 3: I first wrote about this deal on January 18. At that time, it lasted less than 48 hours. The space came back over the weekend, and I didn’t write about because it disappeared in a few hours before I could.

It came back today, and it disappeared within 10 minutes of Gary Leff writing about it. Let’s say it lasted one hour. I can’t say why the space keeps coming back for ever briefer times, but if you can use Saver Business Class space to Europe this summer for 50,000 miles roundtrip and no fuel surcharges, keep checking and keep checking my updates on twitter. I will try to get the next emergence of space up quicker.


Hurry! A glitch is causing US Airways flights to have a ton of Business Class award space to Europe. This will not last. In fact, it has been corrected substantially, but lots of space remains.

You can search the space on or American Airlines charges 50,000 miles one way in Business Class to Europe and US Airways charges 100,000 miles roundtrip.

Sample Space

Blue dates have space for four people on the direct US Airways flight in Business Class.

Philly to Munich has a ton of award space. Some other routes have just a litte award space for 4+ people, but that is still unheard of on US Airways transatlantic flights.

US Airways Business Class is fully flat, and all seats feature direct aisle access on the A330s that fly most of the transatlantic flights.

Getting the Miles

You’re definitely too late to get miles for this glitch. The award space will be gone very soon.

But in general, 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 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, some time in the second quarter of 2015. That means that the chance to earn 50,000 bonus miles after first purchase will disappear soon. Check out all the places you can go with just the sign up bonus.

All US Airways miles not redeemed on the US Airways chart by the time of integration will become American Airlines miles, and American Airlines has committed to not devaluing its award chart at the time of combination. The two types of miles are roughly equal in value. Getting all three cards now and meeting their spending requirements means you will have at least 156,000 American Airlines miles in early 2015.

Hat Tip Gary Leff

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 60,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months, 5x points on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal and 3x points on restaurants, streaming services, and online groceries (excluding Target, Walmart, and wholesale clubs), this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
