We also purchased miles to buy additional tickets for my in-laws - it was cheaper to buy the miles than the ticket! I think the one-way tickets by purchasing miles came out to ~750 each. You might look into some of the airline mileage programs and see if that works out better than actually booking the flight with cash - as long as there are reward seats available on the flight.
We did this too, though w/United since AA taxes are insane as they codeshare through BA. We spent 75,000 united miles and $700+ in buying miles to fly 4 of us back from Paris. Not great, but better than "rack" rates.
