American Airlines-US Airways merger will not affect frequent flier miles, AA says
The consolidation of airline companies continued Thursday with the announcement of a merger between American Airlines and US Airways. The $11 billion deal means that the resultant super airline, to be called American Airlines, will be the world's largest.
What this means on the ground to frequent fliers, according to a letter sent to AAdvantage members, are separately maintained programs.
