Update: It’s dead, Jim. Congrats to those who got in. Awesome deal.
No time for full details. Go to AA.com. On limited dates from January into early March, American Airlines is offering award flights between Los Angeles and Auckland, New Zealand for 5,000 miles each way under the Economy Web Specials. Book. Right. Now.

[…] personally went through all of these reasoning and debating the usage of my 5k award ticket to New Zealand, where there are very few cases of coronavirus. I ultimately canceled due to two reasons: I live […]
Not true !
Now the hard part starts: Actually flying 14 hours in economy. You’ll recover about the time you’re due to return.
Untrue if ur in shape and the right seat (me) . I flew 12 hrs most ever AKL>LAX hit the P-thing then flew ORD then started work .I started work in SYD @ 10:30pm !!! .Not everyone is Rich and can book Bus. Class for the whole family the Poor (me) like to travel too.
Take Care !!!
You’re correct. My reply is snobbish. Is booking 4 business class seats so I can bring each of my cloned dogs ( and the original) considered obnoxious or just eccentric?
I like ur posts very rich people on this website which is Great . I just downgrade what u Bus Travelers do then get a better deal trip on mine that’s all . One block away hotel city view ect . My UK buddies banker son took his 2 dogs to Brisbane for $7k one way so u may be on the lite side with ur dogs.
I know it’s too late, but a question — I have zero AA miles. Would these have been bookable with Avios or on Alaska for some reasonable amount?
No, the asking miles from your intended booking currency will stay the same despite aa has this sale.
Wow!! Was able to reserve one way for 2 on December 8, LAX to AKL, 6k each. I’ll figure out the return later. Thanks!!!!
All gone now, as far as I can tell. Found out an hour too late. Oh well, I’m going in May in Business Class anyway…but I would have bought tickets for my sister and her husband.
and this is why we cant have nice things… bloggers
Right, because you were just gonna stumble upon those before they pulled them.
You can still have nice things. Just shop at Goodwill. I’ve donated all my extra clothes there in sizes from medium to 4x because I’ve been all those sizes.
As far as airfare, just learn to fly. Problem solved
website down now??
Thanks for this! Couldn’t find dates to make a roundtrip work, but grabbed a one-way SFO-LAX-AKL in March for 7.5k. I assume I can figure out some other way back…
Glad to hear it! I made the same assumption. Hopefully we’re both right.
looks dead now, everything up to 27.5k min now. was able to grab 1 ways for 2 from akl to lax for 6k. now gotta piece together how to get there.
Yeah, might be dead. I booked 5 ppl one-way in the other direction. I think you’ll have more luck piecing it together than I will haha.
Might have to take a page from your 40k challenge. thanks for this post!
Where is the ‘Economy Web Specials’ button?
See the screen shot in the post. To the far left. Search usually defaults to economy – got to click the Economy Web Specials to the left.
Gone now.. at least the 5K ones.
I don’t think you can book a full roundtrip anymore for 10,000. Still 45,000 round trip is basically half off, even if it’s in economy.
I literally just booked 3 passengers one way for 6K each, so still alive one way.
I’ll note almost all of March is still 6K one-way from LAX to AKL.
Going back to Niue already? Or catch your ferry this time? ^_^
Ha! Not sure we’ll make it work, but at this price had to book and take 24hrs to think about it.
You still can, but you need to leave in December and return in January. Basically you need to be there for more than a month. 12/8-1/17
booked for 4 people …massive thanks
