American Airlines AAdvantage Miles are Great for Travel to South Asia & the Middle East

American Airlines has some great partners that serve the Middle East and India, including Etihad Airways, Jet Airways and Qatar Airways. You can use AAdvantage miles to fly on the partner airlines, with aircraft and service often superior to American itself.

You must route either non-stop from North America to destination, or through Europe…trans-Pacific flights to these destinations are not bookable with AAdvantage miles.

To visit the Taj Mahal, most people fly to New Delhi
