 Sample Travel Date:

  • March 18th – 26th, 2014

Fare Availability:

  • Valid for travel from March, 2014 – May 20th, 2014 or August 21st, 2014 – November 30th, 2014 for Monday through Thursday departures. Must purchase at least 3 days in advance of departure.

How to Search for Availability:

  • Use ITA Software Matrix Airfare Search and flexible month search to see availability — enable advanced routing codes and enter “aa+” on the outbound and return fields to search for this fare.
  • For AA flyer’s who want to try out American’s 77W service between DFW-HKG, you can route via HKG for the August – November travel period. It is about $200 more but significantly less than the straight DFW-HKG fare and stopover in HKG is just $100 extra. To find availability, use “aa hkg” on the outbound advanced routing code field and “hkg aa” on the return advanced routing code field. It is also booked in V class if you take that routing — so nice amount of EQP’s for those who qualify on EQPs vs EQMs.
