I recently redeemed 37,500 AAdvantage miles for an award with AA. I have both the legacy US Airways Barclays card as well as a Citi AAdvantage card.

Over the weekend, I heard from a source in Hong Kong that Cathay Pacific may be introducing an option for passengers seated in Economy Class to purchase a Business Class meal onboard. This isn’t really a new concept. For example, US Airways has long offered a DineFresh option, where passengers seated in Coach on an long-haul… Read full article

When I checked AA’s site this morning, I was able to log in with my US Airways credentials, but my mileage and million mile balances were still only reflective of my former AAdvantage account. Well, as of an hour ago, all my balances have been correctly combined! There’s just two hiccups that hopefully will work themselves out… Read full article

As a member of the Juicy Miles team, I’ve noticed that one of the most popular destinations for award booking assistance is travel to Australia. Incidentally, Australia is one of the toughest awards to book. Simply put, you don’t get to really decide when you want to go. Rather, you look at what is available and then plan your… Read full article

Here was my strategy for my latest US Airways application… I had one other open US Airways card at the end of December.

When I moved to Philadelphia a few months ago, I began re-thinking my plans for airline loyalty.

All 149 passengers and five crew were able to exit the aircraft with no serious injuries. At the time, many speculated (including the airline) that it was simply an aborted take off due… Read full article
