I just received word from American Airlines that starting this evening, you’ll be able to match up your American Airlines account with your US Airways account and vice versa. You can also check my earlier post about the new combined AAdvantage Program.

Now you can match up your American and US Airways accounts.
Now you can match up your American and US Airways accounts.

Here’s what American has to say:

“The time has come – beginning tonight, members with accounts in both programs will be able to match their accounts on aa.com and usairways.com (full sites only; not on the mobile sites or the app). Members will automatically be presented with the option to match their accounts on either site when they log-in or by selecting the Match My Account link in the My Account section. Once a customer has successfully matched their account, they will see a success message online, receive an email and will see a success message in the My Account section on both sites. Matching accounts is simply a way to self-identify, so the process to merge the accounts in second quarter of 2015 is easier on the business.”

This isn’t a huge game changer in my opinion, but it’s a sign that the final consolidation of American and US Airways is upon us and should be completed by this summer. The next step will be for the airlines to merge their frequent flyer accounts, which should happen in the near future.
