March 31 is a big day for US Airways as it will finally be leaving Star Alliance and joining Oneworld (though retaining some of its Star Alliance partners). To kick off its new alliance membership, the airline is launching a promo where flyers can earn up to 25,000 bonus miles for flying its new Oneworld partners now through June.

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 9.49.38 AMTo earn the bonuses, you must register and fly by June 30, 2014. You can register at any time during the promo period for your activity to qualify. Each airline partner only counts once, so even if you had, say, four British Airways flights, you’d only get credit once. US Airways flights themselves will not count, but American Airlines flights will. Flights marketed/codeshared by a Oneworld partner but operated by one of their partners that’s not a Oneworld member will not earn a bonus either.

While not life-changing, this is a nice little promo that could help you rack up some bonus miles – especially if you’re traveling to other parts of the world where you can take advantage of other Oneworld carriers like JAL and Cathay in Asia; British Airways, Iberia and Finnair in Europe; and LAN in South America, among others.

Stay tuned for more posts and strategies for maximizing US Airways’ membership in Oneworld and its continuing non-Oneworld partnerships in the coming weeks.

    how about existing flights? I have two AA flights in April on my AA account. Can I still get the bonus? count as 2?

    Do you have to give a Dividend Miles number when flying on the partner’s airline? I’ve also always wondered how partner airlines share miles. For example, I always give my Delta Sky Miles number when I fly Air France, but I wonder if it is better to give my Air France Flying Blue number when I fly Delta, since the award travel seems to be more generous with Flying Blue than with Delta. Frequent flyer miles aren’t shared between airline partners’ programs, right?

    This slow transition is kind of a weird strategy. Providing all these bonuses to US Airways members for flying oneworld really just incentivizes them to hold on instead of switching to AA right? And the US Airways program will eventually be pushed into AA anyway, right?

    I’d love to see an answer to the previous questions below as well. I book on AA but tend to fly US air codeshare flights each work. Wondering if I can still get this bonus, but I don’t think AA knows my Dividend number. I tweeted you as well, Points Guy. Please let us know. :)

    You need to credit the flight to your Dividend account, not your AA account.

  • thepointsguy

    You can still get the bonus, but as I say in the post, each carrier only counts once.

    Do you think that reward flights are eligible?

    The T&C don’t specifically exclude reward flights, and I have avios redemptions on S7 and JL coming up (AFAIK, I can just switch the FF number to US at checkin)

  • David

    Echoing @John above, do you think reward flights will work? I booked some flights on Cathay, Malaysian through AA award miles, which are currently linked to my AA account. If I instead exchange it to be my US Dividend account, think I can get these extra miles?
