Right now its dynamic with a chart for a cap for SAAver, so we kinda saw this coming. This is a really terrible.
 5k same day NYC-MIA even with a close in fee is cool.

With AF the dymanic pricing is often much cheaper than before. Definitely the end of an era, but not necessarily such terrible news.

Now if only they got rid of the $75 fee I might actually start using my AA miles.

Just like delta is so useful with no close in fee.

The problem is that whenever there's only a reasonable mileage level award available when the price of.buying is super low. They are all switching to effectively a JetBlue and Southwest model where you're just getting a fixed "cents per mile" value. Not necessarily awful but it turns it into a not very lucrative rebate program and takes the fun out of finding good redemption opportunities.

+1 I booked KRK-AMS-JFK in J for 53k (43k MR with transfer bonus) the day before I wanted to fly when for weeks it was pricing over 200k
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Had a KL J award KRK-AMS-JFK price out at 53k OW.
Although Y on the same flights could’ve been 130k+  ::)

And here it is...
No more Saver and AAnytime awards showing on the new web layout.
It's all gone to dynamic pricing.
