Frequent fliers of U.S. Airways and American Airlines can earn and redeem

 

Frequent fliers on American and U.S. Airways can now start using their benefits through both airlines.


US AIrways will be exiting Star Alliance on March 30, 2014. Passengers will be able to earn and redeem miles on Star Alliance carriers until that date. Any existing reservations for travel on a codeshare flight with a Star Alliance partner after March 30, 2014 are safe; however, passengers will be rebooked with a new flight number from the carrier operating the flight, and earning miles on Star Alliance will no longer be an option. Also US Airways passengers will no longer benefit from their sometimes long earned Star Alliance Gold or Silver benefits.


US Airways will be joining the OneWorld Alliance. American Airlines was a founding member of that competing alliance.


That's according to a statement released Tuesday from American.The airline merged with U.S. Airways back in December and kept the American name.
With this week's announcement, frequent fliers can earn and redeem miles on either airline and members will be allowed in each airline's clubs.
Company officials say the new measures are the first steps to fully integrate the two frequent flier programs into one.


The American Airlines website said: We are pleased to announce our merger with US Airways which brings even more opportunities for our AAdvantage® members to make the most of their travel. Rest assured, your miles are intact and will continue to be honored, as is your elite status.


For now, the AAdvantage and Dividend Miles programs will operate separately, but with added perks for each other's members. In addition to all the current ways to earn and redeem miles for flights with the AAdvantage program, as of January 7, 2014, you can now earn and redeem miles when flying on US Airways. Members can also earn elite-qualifying miles, points and segments on eligible US Airways flights. Plus, AAdvantage elite status members will receive select reciprocal elite benefits when flying on US Airways including priority check-in, security and boarding, free checked bags and more.


You can continue to book your flights and manage your AAdvantage account on aa.com, where US Airways flights are available for booking as well".
