IMG_4342Much of the partnership between Alaska Airlines and American Airlines will be dismantled come spring.

Alaska Airlines announced on Wednesday that members of its Mileage Plan frequent-flyer plan will no longer earn miles on American Airlines international flights and will no longer be able to redeem miles for award travel on any American flights.

The change will go into effect on March 1, 2020.

What will remain after that date will be a codeshare partnership on specific American Airlines flights.

Mileage Plan members will still earn one mile for every mile flown on domestic American Airlines flights that carry an Alaska Airlines flight number.  These flights are mostly to cities in the Midwest and eastern United States and Canada.

In addition, Alaska Lounge members will continue to have access to over 50 domestic and foreign American Airlines Admirals Club lounges when flying on either an Alaska or American flight.
