American Airlines’ New Award Flights Map

We’ve seen flight-booking maps before, but this one lets you see where you can afford to fly for “free” on American Airlines frequent-flier miles. Type in your departure and return dates, where you want to go — Europe, Hawaii, Beach, Ski — how many miles you’d like to spend, and boom, it generates a map of places you go.

As The Points Guy notes, there are some quirks and limitations. It would also be nice, for instance, to have some flexibility on dates built in. But in general, I’d like to see more tools like this, not fewer. A good start.
