United Airlines issued a statement to its customers late Monday providing a schedule for the wind-down of its relationship with US Airways.  US Airways consummated its merger with American Airlines on Monday and will exit its partnership with United as well as its membership in Star Alliance on March 30, 2014.

The Chicago-based airline said it will be “business as usual” until the partnership ends although United appears to have already stopped selling US Airways-operated codeshares. (US Airways also appears to have stopped selling United-operated codeshares.)

All current United tickets issued for travel on US Airways will be honored.  MileagePlus members can book award travel on US Airways using MileagePlus miles through March 30, for any travel dates that are available, including those beyond March 30.

MileagePlus members will continue to earn award miles, Premier qualifying miles, Premier qualifying segments, and Premier qualifying dollars on US Airways flights through March 30.

In addition, United Club members and travelers flying on an international United flight in business or first class can access the US Airways Club through March 30.
