OK, Gary’s post this morning got me to thinking. I really do want to fly the AA A321 transcontinental product. I have no idea whether it’s selling well or not, I just want to try it. I flew the first AA transcon from DCA to LAX, and I know this will be even better, on a brand new airplane!

As you may remember, I used to live less than 15 minutes from DCA. As a result, I have more US miles than AA miles at the moment. Knowing that I can now book AA flights with US miles, I decided to do a little checking on usairways.com. The end result – I found the AA transcon A321T flights I want in a few weeks for just 50K Dividend Miles.

Rest assured, I’ll be blogging about my experience. But best of all, I get to fly the current best transcon product in the sky. Looking forward to it is a BIG understatement.
