American Airlines, US Airways Will Merge Frequent Flier Programs in 2015
Good news for frequent business Travelers: American Airlines AAdvantage and US Airways Dividend Miles members will become part of the same frequent flier program in the second quarter of 2015, the airline reports.
The AAdvantage loyalty program will combine mileage balances and align elite levels and qualification criteria. It will also introduce the new upgrade policy for elite status members flying on American and US Airways.
American Airlines said that in early 2015, members who have an account in both programs will have the opportunity to match their accounts. This is the next step before the program integration, which will offer customers a more seamless experience, whether their flight is on American or US Airways, the carriers said.
American began offering reciprocal benefits to AAdvantage and Dividend Miles members in January 2014, just one month after the close of the merger of American and US Airways.
