After writing up my post about the AA award chart changes, I took a quick glance at Twitter. There’s not quite the sharp response that was elicited by United and Delta during their recent devaluations, but I caught notice of American Airlines promising that all would be revealed in the morning.
Well, okay, they didn’t quite say that. They went for:
You’ll see some changes to the AA and US websites. We plan to officially announce some new policies later this morning
Then the other shoe dropped:
US Airways has a new award chart out, increasing the price to 110k miles roundtrip for business class to North Asia. Somewhat oddly, first class remains at 120k miles roundtrip.
