Frustrated with American Airlines

Jump to last reply

I have 135,000 ff miles and husband has 175,000 and we want to go to Spain first class (mile saver award)or least Business class (milesaver award) to Barcelona and Madrid but American will only release one such seat for the time frame we want- namely in May or even April. going much before it will be too cold, and of course on the summer it is out of the question. They will release two seats if we select First Anytime award but that requires much too much mileage. We avoid London (BA flights) as the fuel/taxes on these awards are rediculous and thus make that option a no go. So we are forced to look for flights that avoid London and there are precious few.
I have tried many different dates, going first to Bacelona and back from Madrid (our home city is Houston) and vice versa but cannot make it work.
Have I missed any option that will make this work?
