Brian at The Points Guy reported that American Airlines has launched a new interactive award map to help users figure out how much miles they need for different destinations.
After trying it out myself, I’d advise to set your “Total Miles to Use” high, like at 200,000. If you set it lower, the website will often say “No results found.” I think this award map is more useful if you’re looking for trip ideas. In the “To” drop-down menu, you can search by “Interest,” like beach or golf.
However, if you already know exactly where you want to go and just want to find out how many miles you need, you’re better off using the regular AA award reservations flight search.
