AMEX Revamps International Airline Program

The AMEX International Airline Program used to be a relatively unknown and unused benefit of the Platinum card but not anymore! While some former users of the program will be disappointed the program no longer offers a 2-for-1 deal on business and first class international flights, those tickets were priced out of reach for most of us normal folk anyway. Now, the program will offer discounts on all first class, business class, and premium economy tickets. Moreover, you'll be able to pay with points through the program to book tickets!

So, how much can you expect to save using the program? Each flight ranges in the amount of discount you can receive, but it seems there are excellent offers of 12% off some fares.
