To take part in this offer, you must book now through November 19, 2013 for travel from January 13 – March 11, 2014. These are valid from the United States to Europe. You are able to book open-jaw awards through this offer.
For an example, I was able to price and book an award from Newark to Paris for 48,000 miles and 90.40 in taxes and fees, which normally would of cost 60,000 miles.
For comparison though, US Airways offers their off-peak awards to Europe from January 15 – February 28, which are available for 35,000 miles round-trip in economy, so make sure to do your homework first.
