We decided to remake the new AA award charts for two reason.
1) The AA award chart looks terrible. They have a dozen award charts on one page, instead of one.
Our award charts not only look better, but have everything in one place. We manually went through in order to create this for you. And for myself.
In the long run it will probably save me time, and I was able to notice better prices and deals when I could see all the prices in one place. This is the basis of my next post (coming soon) finding best uses of the new AA award chart.
2) It doesn’t seem clearly explained to most people that there are two award charts. I saw in the comments of one blog where people were confused why there were two different prices… and it wasn’t explained.
It’s because the price sometimes changes depending on if you fly on AA or a OneWorld airline.
What we’ve done is make two award charts. The first is the OneWorld award chart, the second is the AA award chart for flights only on AA. Then I’ll add a second version of the AA award chart that has colors to indicate the savings for flying on AA instead of a OneWorld partner. (For example, you can save miles on a trip to Asia by flying AA instead of partner.
Okay, here are the award charts.

Again, my next post will be finding the good deals and explaining how to think about the new award chart, and the differences between the charts.
However, having these charts in one place is incredibly helpful for me, and I hope it is for you as well.
