Update on American Loyalty Program

American has created a single loyalty program by bringing US Airways Dividend Miles® members into the AAdvantage® program. Members will soon receive an email with information on accessing their account via or, earning and redeeming miles, combined benefits for elite members and benefit enhancements on Citi®/AAdvantage® credit cards.

US Dividend Miles members will receive information on their balance and how to transfer it and their current million miler status and other qualifying activity for preferred status to their new or exisiting AAdvantage account.

If customers have already booked travel on US Airways or American using their Dividend Miles number, their reservation will be updated with their new AAdvantage number and the reservation should reflect any elite benefits for which they are eligible.

American and US Airways will continue to operate as two separate airlines with separate websites, mobile sites and apps until later this year. Until then, policies, including same day flight change, standby and upgrades, will also vary by airline. Customers should continue to check in and manage their trips with the airline operating their flight.

Special Note from Travel Leaders: If you have already merged your accounts or received your new frequent flyer number, make sure to update your travel profile with Travel Leaders.

United Airlines plans to end service in October at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, where it failed to profit over seven years because it offered few connections to other cities, and add flights at its Newark, New Jersey hub.
