November 18, 2010

Good news for JetBlue and American flyers- you can now bank points to either program when flying on select routes. Miles earned are not elite qualifying and there is no 500 mile minimum, however its a good start. Also- you cannot currently redeem AA miles for JetBlue flights, but I could see that changing in […]

Airline Elite Status Match 101

November 15, 2010

As an elite qualifying year comes to an end (December 31, 2010), it’s a great time to decide whether to go for elite status if you haven’t already achieved the level that you desire. I’m currently 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles short of Delta’s top tier (Diamond Medallion, 125,000 MQMs), so I planned a weekend trip […]

New AA.com Launched Today

November 14, 2010

AA.com got a little jazzed up today. However, it appears to be a cosmetic refreshening and not an implementation of new tools that will make the experience more robust (like the ability to book partner award tickets online). The official launch date isn’t until tomorrow (Nov 15), so I’ll wait to pass judgement. What would you […]

American Introduces AAdvantage Car and Hotel Rewards

November 4, 2010

Non-flight rewards are nothing new, but they usually offer very little value (less than a penny a mile return). However, American launched their new portal and at first glance, it seems to have the potential to offer great value for those frequent flyers who may not want to use their miles for flights.  They are […]

AA Announces New Routes (Including Shanghai) from LAX

October 20, 2010

LAX always amuses me. It’s such a hodgepodge of international carriers, yet no domestic carrier dominates it.  Certainly Southwest and AA have strongholds, but it’s not like what ATL is to Delta for any one carrier. However, AA made an announcement today announcing 9 new routes from LAX: Shanghai, Boise, El Paso, Houston, Albuquerque, Oklahoma […]

Should I buy back my expired frequent flyer miles?

July 28, 2010

One of the deadly sins of frequent flyer miles is letting them expire . That word alone makes me shiver. However, we are all busy these days and if you stop flying an airline, its easy to forget about expiration dates and keeping the account active. In reality, most airlines have shopping malls, so buying […]
