AA award travel has NO off-peak availability in a year? Really?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to book award travel on American Airlines -- hoping to fly into and out of Rome. Checking availability, every single departure and return appears to cost the $60 K highest "anytime" award. Month after month, including the months that are supposed to be "off-peak", no "off-peak" availability is offered. Rather than go city by city in Europe, month after month, I thought I'd ask the smart people on this forum: Are there cities for which AA essentially does not offer lower, off-peak award travel at all, even during off-peak times (in Europe, October 15-May 15)? Or are there so few offered they really are snapped up in the first minutes of their opening up?

And is there any way to know when they "open up"? Long ago it was by the calendar, but I think it's more random now. Any advice on finding off-peak award travel to Europe (or anywhere else!) on American?
