American Airlines to Hit Merger Milestone Next Month with Frequent Flyer Program Integration
In what the airline called a “final US Airways Dividend Miles e-Statement,” it said: “Next month, we’ll reach the next milestone on our path to integration by bringing Dividend Miles into the American Airlines AAdvantage program.”
The Fort Worth-based airline explained what will happen next as well: “We’ll transfer your mileage balance and elite-qualifying activity into your new (or existing) AAdvantage account.”
American merged with US Airways in 2013. It has since made progress in integrating various workgroups including pilots and flight attendants, and expects to get a single operating certificate by the end of the year, which will allow it to operate as one airline. On the eve of the one-year anniversary of its merger with US Airways last December, American Airlines announced a $2 billion investment in aircraft cabins, Admirals Club lounges, and international in-flight Internet.
