As part of American’s and US Airways’ merger settlement with the Department of Justice, American agreed to divest 17 slot pairs at New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA), which the airline cut daily roundtrip flights from LGA to Atlanta, Cleveland and Minneapolis – three Delta strongholds – which it plans to offset with these 10 new routes. The impact on competition on these routes still isn’t clear, but hopefully more flights and options will keep fares competitive, and in the meantime Southeast flyers can earn some bonus miles over the coming months.

Just as a reminder, American Airlines also launched a new daily flight from Los Angeles to Sao Paulo in December, and you can earn up to 15,000 bonus miles by flying roundtrip in business/first, 10,000 miles in full-fare economy and 5,000 miles in economy through April 15. The airline is also offering similar bonuses for flying its new A321T transcontinental service between JFK-LAX through March 31, and JFK-SFO through May 31.
