American Airlines says it is bolstering service from several of its hubs to Las Vegas (LAS) during the week of the Super Bowl.
Let’s take a look at what you need to know before the big game!
American Adds More Flights From 10 Cities
American will increase service to Las Vegas between February 8 and 12, 2024, to accommodate travelers traveling to town for Super Bowl LVII.
The airline will fly its 3-class Airbus A321T jet between New York (JFK) and Las Vegas, often used for transcontinental routes like Los Angeles (LAX). American’s A321T — a single-aisle jet — offers 10 Flagship First seats, 20 Flagship Business seats, 36 Main Cabin Extra seats, and 36 Main Cabin seats.
Flagship First passengers flying out of JFK will have access to the Chelsea Lounge, which offers a Champagne bar and á la carte dining, while Flagship Business customers can access Greenwich Lounge, which offers a tasting room.
American will operate 1 round-trip service on its Boeing 787 for inbound travel on February 8 and 9 and outbound travel on February 12 from Miami (MIA) and Philadelphia (PHL) to Las Vegas.
All told, the airline will bolster service to Las Vegas from the following cities: Austin (AUS), Charlotte (CLT), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix (PHX), and Washington, D.C. (DCA).
Booking American Airlines Flights
Tickets are now available for Super Bowl dates, and as expected, cash prices aren’t cheap. This is a perfect use case for points and miles.
For instance, a round-trip ticket from New York to Las Vegas will set you back nearly $1,000 during Super Bowl weekend. While plentiful at the moment, award availability is also pretty pricey when using American Airlines AAdvantage miles, with rates starting at around 114,000 miles round-trip.
If you’re short on AAdvantage miles, you can consider opening a co-branded card such as the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite Mastercard® (2x miles per dollar spent on American), Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite Mastercard® (1 Loyalty Point for every 1 eligible AAdvantage mile earned from purchases), or the American Airlines AAdvantage® MileUp® (2x miles per dollar spent on American).
This is pretty good news for football fans who will have plenty of options to travel to and from Las Vegas from many of American’s hub airports. While we don’t know who will be playing in the Super Bowl, if you think your team has a shot, you should book your flights now while there’s still availability!
