Wednesday, May 18, 2016   by John @laptoptravel Sample Overnight Itinerary Summer Fare Calendar Available Dates in July and August Following up on our recent Mileage Run post, San Francisco to Dublin, we offer a Caribbean Summer Sale and Mileage Run for our American Airlines AAdvantage readers and followers. If you do not follow us yet on Twitter, then please click here to start!  That will keep you ‘in the loop’ with the latest Mileage Run tweets. Today, I found that American Airlines is aggressively pricing cheap fares to Puerto Rico.  I have been tweeting many of these, but wanted to offer this fantastic SUMMER DEAL here, since it covers two full months and has so many available dates for travel; plus it these can be simple Mileage Run itineraries or full vacation fares.

For the maximum Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) you have to select routes that include Los Angeles (LAX) as a connection in both directions.  Doing this raises your MQMs to 5,950.  This is a “Pay With Miles” eligible flight so you can “buy down” the fare with your available SkyMiles.  If you…
