What this basically boils down to is that American and US Airways are working on separate reservations systems as of now, so at some point they're going to need to integrate into a single system. At that point they'll truly be one airline -- all flights will technically be operated by "American," there will be identical rules across all flights, etc. The post You Can Now Redeem Alaska Miles For Travel On US Airways appeared first on One Mile at a Time.
