AAdvantage guides updated with new pricing post AA-devaluation

A few weeks back the new, increased pricing from American Airlines for AAdvantage redemptions came into force.

Many readers are still likely to want to redeem AAdvantage miles from miles purchased from promos in the past, or to keep earning them given that the pricing is still usable for good value Business Class (and not so much, First) for a range of destination.

Given how many guides I’ve published on AAdvantage over the last couple of years relied on the old pricing, it was worth going back and updating them.

Here’s what’s been updated.
