    Well, more like Amtrak is still trying to negotiate with United to keep the partnership alive but they are still unsuccessful as of now. Still, when OnePass dies on December 31 so will the relationship with Amtrak. Unfortunate to lose a partner; hopefully they can find an agreement that allows it to continue.

    The other questions this raises are the lounge reciprocity and the impact on other OnePass partners, namely Eva and Virgin Atlantic. Should be interesting to see it all play out in the coming weeks.

    More here and here.

    That is a shame to hear, i was really looking forward to using ACELA and rack up some points. Hopefully UNITED and AMTRAK can make it work.

    This is the death of the FF relationship but not necessarily the interline or the fare bits. That part is less clear right now.

    I wonder if we would still be able to book trips to/from ZFV up until 12/31? Might need to plan ahead for next year.
