Recently, American Airlines introduced “Web Saver” mile fares, where they would also offer some fares that were lower than the traditional 12,500 miles for a one way domestic flight within the United States.

When they were first introduced, Miles to Memories (among others) noted that AA didn’t show these lower prices by default, instead defaulting you to the regular Mile SAAver prices. It’s a week or so since that post came out, but when I logged on to check a flight today, I noticed that DID default me to the Web Special flights.


Where are the cheap fares?

But… where are the cheap fares? Here’s what Page 1 looks like

I did find a 6K flight on Page 2

and a 6.5K on Page 3

But the prices were all over the board so it was super difficult to see the different options. And ooh baby a 10 hour layover in O’Hare sounds wonderful!!!! Maybe if I could stay in the United Polaris lounge ORD it would be okay, but something tells me that my Basic Economy AA ticket will NOT grant me access…. 🙂

Tragically, there is no “Sort by Price” option

I can only hope that it is in the works for and coming soon, though with the state of IT at American, I’m not holding my breath…
