Here’s a quick reminder that the US Airways and American Airlines integration hasn’t fully completed, but at the same time, you can earn more points and miles with just a few steps.

Most know that you can book awards on American Airlines flights with US Airways miles and also book US Airways flights with American Airlines miles. So in a sense, it doesn’t really matter where you credit your miles because they’ll eventually end up in the same place.

But if you aren’t crediting your US Airways flights to your AA Business Extra account, you’ll miss out on some bonus points.

  1. Be careful, code sharing has some bugs. I just returned from a 3-segment trip on AA with a code share on USAirways in the middle. I was not able to use Curbside checking on both of the AA flights (it was not available on USAirways in SNA), because the skycaps’ systems were unable to find my reservation, the record locator, or even recognize my Executive Platinum status. When I checked in at the desk, they even initially wanted to charge me for my luggage as well.

    Also of note, AA moved from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4 at PHX this week. There were 2 flights departing at approx. the same time (DFW and ORD) with about 40 seats for 200+ passengers, and the US Airways Club in B was closed for renovations, too. Fun for all!
