Ranging from at present, you’ll be able to redeem your AAdvantage Miles in direction of flights operated by China Southern (CZ). On the similar time, you could possibly additionally earn redeemable miles on all CZ-operated and -coded flight, with an incomes price outlined beneath.
Understandably, the accrual price is fairly dangerous on some closely discounted cabin, and also you must also bear in mind that it’ll NOT earn you any Elite Qualifying Mile or Greenback on CZ-coded flights. If you wish to earn EQM and EQD, your flight have to be marked with AA flight codes, typically which means the worth of the ticket will considerably hike.
On the burning facet, mileage redemption on CZ flights follows the prevailing award chart.
And beneath is a map exhibiting all of the continuous CZ flights between China and the USA.
Apparently nearly all of the visitors comes from Guangzhou, China Southern’s fortress hub. You even have a variety of alternatives to attach past Guangzhou, because of the expansive home and regional community of CZ.
Inside Asia 2, a one-way financial system ticket will value you 17500 AA miles, excluding taxes and charges. On condition that AA’s area definition is kind of broad, there are ample alternatives to benefit from what China Southern has to supply when it comes to intra-Asia flights.
As we speak I attempted to e book an award ticket with AAdvantage mile and the agent had no drawback discovering the right award area and pricing the ticket. The agent returned with ~$130 and ~$150 taxes and charges for a one-way financial system ticket from New York (JFK) to Guangzhou (CAN) and Guangzhou (CAN) to Los Angeles (LAX), respectively, much like what Delta used to cost. What this implies is that AA will cost you a average quantity of gasoline surcharge. This isn’t perfect, however not the worst (e.g. BA) both.
On a remaining word, at the moment firstclass award can’t be booked utilizing AAdvantage miles, though AA guarantees that it’s working with China Southern in direction of firstclass redemption ultimately. I hope this could occur quickly. I can’t wait to e book a first-class seat on China Southern’s A380 between Guangzhou and Los Angeles, because the laborious product appears to be like nice.
