Yesterday I wrote about a really cool new AAdvantage Award map that was just released by American. Well this afternoon American posted a video to YouTube that gives you a demo of how it works.
It was officially announced today and it turns out that it’s the result of an interesting project to recruit technology talent at American. From the press release:
“Award Map is specifically designed with our customers in mind to help make booking flights with miles easier than ever,” said Suzanne Rubin, President – AAdvantage Loyalty Program. “The intuitive layout and simple navigation of Award Map offers customers a robust, easy-to-use tool that makes searching for and booking award tickets much more convenient.”
American is committed to technology innovation, and Award Map is a direct product of the American Airlines Development Program for Technology (ADEPT) initiative – a college recruiting program created to develop a technical talent pipeline for Information Technology. More information can be found at www.aa.com/ADEPT.
Of course, rather than watching the video, it’s more fun to just go play with the award map at www.aa.com/awardmap!
