American Airlines sent out an email yesterday about the Award Map feature that they had added to AA.com. You can access this option here.
You can use this Award Map to show range of destinations from your departure city to United States, Europe, Middle East etc.
You can search based on the preferred cabin and the number of miles that you have to spend. It doesn’t seem to work very well, however, and it only searches for AA and partner availability that is bookable on AA.com. This leaves most of the partners out of this Award Map.
It is good that American is trying to introduce options for people to easier see how they can utilize the miles that they have. This could be worthwhile once they have all the partner awards bookable online. Right now the selection is too limited.
