Back in October of last year American announced several new routes, including Dallas to Seoul Incheon, which is set to launch on May 9, 2013.
For travel on this new route between May 9 and August 15, 2013, American is offering between 5,000 and 30,000 bonus miles for a roundtrip journey, as follows:
As you can see, discounted economy fares earn 5,000 bonus miles, full fare economy earns 15,000 bonus miles, and first and business class fares earn 30,000 bonus miles. These amounts are for roundtrip travel, though eligible one-ways would accrue half of the above bonuses. Registration is required using promotion code AAICN.
I’ve had a look at fares and it doesn’t look like there are any amazing ones out there yet. Coach seems to start at just under $1,300 roundtrip, while business class starts at $3,800. On the plus side, confirmable upgrade space is generally excellent. I’ll be monitoring for better fares, and if there are any good ones might just jump on this.
It’s exciting to see American finally launch a new route to Asia, even though I would’ve preferred Hong Kong.
