Consolidated List of Airline Partners And Which Are Bookable Online

by on July 3, 2013 · 24 comments

in Alaska, American, Avianca TACA, British Airways, Delta, Lufthansa, Qantas, Singapore Airlines, United, US Airways, Virgin Atlantic

One of the most frustrating parts of searching for and booking award tickets is knowing where to look. Many airline websites are either woefully or willfully outdated when it comes to searching not only their own award availability, but also that of their partners.

In light of recent exciting developments including EVA’s entrance into Star Alliance and now being bookable through United.com, as well as Virgin Atlantic and Delta’s new partnership, I thought it would be a great idea to put together a resource where you can see which airline’s web sites allow you to book awards on which partners (as well as the partners that they do not show you) so you can reference it and figure out where you should be looking for awards on specific airlines.

This list will constantly changes as (hopefully) airlines get better at showing actual award availability online. If I’ve miscategorized any partner, please comment and I’ll update.

Air Canada‘s Aeroplan is actually a separate company from the airline (Air Canada sold it off years ago). Here is the partner list and award chart. The airline will begin charging more for awards on certain routes, starting in January 2014, so it might make sense to book before then.

For more information on Aeroplan redemptions, taxes and fuel surcharges, check out my series: In Part 1 of my series, I priced out awards on Air Canada, United, Lufthansa, Brussels Air, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, ANA and South African Airways. In Part 2, I looked at some other popular Star Alliance carriers including: Air China, Asiana, EgyptAir, LOT Polish Airlines, SAS, Swiss, TAM, Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines and US Airways (for now). In Part 3 I examined the rest of the 27 Star Alliance partners including: Adria Airways, Aegean, Austrian, Avianca/Taca, Copa Croatia, Shenzhen and TAP, and the final installment: Aeroplan Star Alliance Taxes and Fees Overview Roundup.

    This is a great resource. Thanks

  • THEsocalledfan

    What about Aeroflot with Delta? I don’t see that listed.

  • ak

    love it! how about a companion post of all airlines and where to find award availability for each online

  • ryan

    This is really useful, thanks. It seems that you always have a post like this up your sleeve for those rainy days.

  • Wandering Aramean

    Have you recently managed to book LOT on the UA site? I’m pretty sure it hasn’t shown in a while now. And the test I just ran isn’t showing it on United’s site while ANA is.

  • Andy F.

    I tried several times but I don’t think China Airlines (CI) and China Southern (CZ) are bookable online at delta.com.

  • thepointsguy

    Thanks Andy – I’ll look into it some more, but for now have place in the “call” section.

  • thepointsguy

    Last week I found the WAW-ORD flight last week for 2 weeks from now in mid/late July. Have you not been seeing any in the last couple of weeks?

  • vortix

    TPG – can you update this list to include credit card transfer partners (Chase UR, AmEx MR, etc.) for each airline program listed?

  • Diamond Vargas

    Another way to approach that would be to just CTRL F search this page for the airline you’d like to book, and you’ll be able to easily see which websites include that airline in the Bookable Online sections.

  • Diamond Vargas

    Fantastic resource TPG, thanks very much. I’ve been hoping someone would put this exact list together.

  • Samuel

    According to: http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/skymiles/use-miles/award-travel/about-award-travel.html

    “Current carriers that are able to be shopped and booked on delta.com are Delta, Delta Connection®, Aeromexico, Air France, Alaska Airlines, Alitalia, Hawaiian Airlines, KLM, Korean Air, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia.”

    Unless that link isn’t accurate, you have 4 airlines listed that aren’t bookable online.

  • rfclub

    it is somehow outdated. EVA is now a *a member.

  • Deepak Valecha

    You missed out Jet Airways (9W) on the US Airways list….i just redeemed a 9W award a few weeks ago…in fact mixed it with a Star alliance (SQ) sector!

  • Deborah McKee

    It was listed as a call in,

  • Vit

    Is it possible to redeem United Mileage Plus or Aeroplan miles for the following:

    Air Creebec. Bearskin Airlines. Canadian North, Calm Air, First Air?

    And what is the award chart – e.g. how many miles for a flight? Thoese airlines are generally very expensive, so It would be nice to redeem the miles on them.

  • http://www.triplepundit.com Nick Aster

    Great list! Has anyone managed to see Premium Economy on Virgin Atlantic vis Delta? Seems it doesn’t exist as an option. Wonder if you get skunked booking on Virgin?

  • Mr. Cool

    just flew CZ & SU: PEK-TAS then TAS-MOW on delta miles. booked by phone.

    both were eco class “O”, which for SU turned out to = bidness class, for no extra miles

  • Yati

    Great post, thanks. I take a lot 1-way flights. Could you make a list of airlines or mileage programs that allow 1-way award bookings? All i know of are United and American. Thanks.

  • euro_traveler

    Great compilation. I can tell you put a lot of time in researching this.

    Any chance you could add Lufthansa to this list?

  • Chister

    Very valuable information, thanks!
