I'm more of a gambler than an airline miles aficionado, so I'm hoping someone may have some insight on this question (the boards about airline miles scare me a bit). I'm planning to do a RT flight to Vegas, departing this Friday 11/4 but haven't yet gotten a ticket. American is currently showing only AAnytime availability (and not milessaver) for my outgoing flight, which is expected since it's a Friday, but they're currently asking 30,000 miles for the flight - which I think is pretty crazy. Generally AAnytime is 20k. The return flight is currently available with Milesaver at 12,500. Does anyone have any idea whether the 30k miles "price" is likely - or even possible - to reduce the closer I get to the flight. If not, I'm likely to just book the whole thing now before the aanytime is not available for the return. I really hate spending 42,500 miles for a trip to Vegas. . . but I'm nervous to take a wait and see approach and it end up being 50k or 60 k. Thanks in advance for any insights.
