USAirways announces changes to Dividend Miles club, will exit Star Alliance

See also

As part of USAirways' integration with American Airlines, the combined company announced today that members of USAirways frequent flyer plan, Dividend Miles, can now earn and redeem miles on both airlines. All miles and segments on both airlines will count toward elite status on either airline's club.

Also, Dividend Miles elite members can start using certain "reciprocal benefits" when flying on either airline, such as first and business class check-in, priority security and boarding and complimentary checked bags.

USAirways members can now access Admirals Club locations in 35 airports worldwide as well. However, the airline plans to exit global airline network Star Alliance on March 30, 2014. Until then, Dividend Miles members can continue earning and redeeming miles on Star Alliance partner airlines.

USAirways plans to join another airline network, the Oneworld Alliance, on March 31, 2014. The airline has not announced a date for implementing code sharing with American Airlines but says that it's "coming soon." This will allow seamless booking of travel with either airline.
