Also, regarding the American Airlines challenge or any flights that you are looking for a good fare in specific class across an entire month you can use this syntax for the fare class search on itasoftware :

sfo::aa+ / f bc=V

This means a flight from JFK, on one or more American Airlines flight, in booking class V. This comes in handy when using the month long search tool as you can search a wide range of the 90 days you have for your challenge on AA.
