It gets better. This is a nationwide sale, with cheap award rates from more than 100 airports across the country over to London-Heathrow (LHR), Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Rome (FCO), Madrid (MAD), and many more. And here's the best part: You can even make it work in August and September 2024 for a Eurotrip this summer!

That's a sizzling deal – easily one of the best (and cheapest) AAdvantage mileage deals we've seen in months … if not years.

You'll find the best availability flying into either London or Paris – especially if you're hoping to pull off a cheap trip using miles this summer. But if you're flexible, you can get to other amazing European destinations like Barcelona (BCN), Venice (VCE), Munich (MUC), and more with this deal.

It's not just nonstop routes from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Philadelphia (PHL), and other American Airlines hubs seeing award rates this low, either. This deal included availability from more 100 cities all over the U.S., from coast to coast. Just 38,000 miles for a one-stop trip to Europe and back? Yes, please!

The beauty of booking with AA miles is that you always get a main cabin fare – no American basic economy here – so you get a free checked bag, seat selection, inflight meals, and more. And every ticket booked with American AAdvantage miles can be canceled for free, so you can lock in a flight for later this year using your American miles right now, then cancel it if your plans change and get your miles back.  Simply cancel your flight online and AA will redeposit your miles in your account.

Get this: Paying cash for many of these flights would cost you $1,300 or more roundtrip. That makes this a stellar way to use your AAdvantage miles miles.

Repeat that process to find your cheap flights home from Europe. When choosing flights, filter for “American Airlines” to make sure you avoid British Airways flights – those have higher fees and steeper award rates, too.
