This is a very simple promotion in which you can earn bonus AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles simply for flying as a passenger between Los Angeles and Auckland; and if you planned on doing that anyway as a passenger of Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” aircraft operated by American Airlines anyway via the qualifying fare classes, then by all means register for this promotion.

I have been to both the north and south islands of New Zealand during a week in which I spent there years ago; and I would highly recommend going there — especially if you like the great outdoors, as there is plenty to do. Additionally, a hop to Australia is approximately three hours each way if you want to extend your trip.
