American Airlines sent an email out on March 24 saying the programs would combine loyalty programs on March 28, 2015. As of right now, statuses have already started updating. My US Airways Chairman’s Preferred status has already started to update on AAdvantage as Executive Platinum. If you have status on one of the airlines you should check to see if it’s updated on the other.
Hopefully mileage balances should start combining soon so we can book with the combined miles. It looks like the merger is going as smoothly and quickly as we could hope for so lets hope that continues.
