American Airlines & Alaska Reduce Partnership (Miles Can’t Be Redeemed)
American Airlines & Alaska Airlines have announced that starting March 1st, 2020 significant cuts to their partnership will be made.
- Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ members will no longer be able to redeem Mileage Plan miles on American Airlines domestic or international flights.
- American Airlines AAdvantage members will no longer be able to redeem AAdvantage miles on Alaska Airlines flights
- Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members will no longer earn Mileage Plan miles on international American Airlines flights.
American Airlines is claiming that this is being done to free up award space for their own members, but it’s difficult to know if that will actually be the case or not without being able to see how many American Airlines customers are redeeming miles for Alaska flights.
