Building the new American
With the legal close of our merger with US Airways, we’re one step closer to bringing you a stronger airline that offers greater schedule options, access to more destinations around the globe and a modern fuel-efficient fleet.
While we’ve legally combined as one company, we'll continue to function as two separate airlines for quite some time, and very few changes will happen immediately. This is especially important throughout the busy holiday travel season, as our first priority will be delivering a smooth operation for customers of both airlines. There is no impact to any existing travel reservations you may have with American Airlines or US Airways at this time, and any mileage balance or elite status you have earned in either frequent flyer program are completely safe.
Throughout the process, we’ll continue to provide you updates on benefits we plan to begin rolling out in early January, such as the ability to earn and redeem miles on both carriers and reciprocal lounge access. In early 2014, you’ll also enjoy easy access to our combined premier global network through our codeshare agreement with US Airways, which will offer a convenient travel journey when booking, checking-in or connecting on flights between our two airlines.
On March 31, 2014, US Airways will join the oneworld® alliance, adding more than 60 destinations to the oneworld map and expanding oneworld’s global network to nearly 1,000 destinations in more than 150 countries, served by 14,250 daily departures.
