Blog Giveaway 10000 US Airways Miles

You Could Win US Airways Miles Before They Become American Airlines Miles!

US Airways miles will soon become American Airlines miles as the final steps of the merger will be completed in 2015.  The Barclays US Airways card will become an American Airlines card next year.  However, you can sign-up to get the US Airways bonus miles for now.

I already miss some US Airways benefits including the US Airways Grand Slam and the 90,000 US Airways miles for a Business Class award to North Asia.

What will you miss or not miss about US Airways?

  1. I will miss the companion pass for sure !!!

  2. I will miss the opportunity to buy & share 100k miles to use on business class sweet spot awards.

  4. I will miss the companion certificate with the US Airways credit card!

  5. The companion tickets and the ability to take a crew places for cheap!

  6. I will miss the US Air livery. It is really recognizable!

  7. I will miss the US Airways award chart to Europe and Asia. There was a short period in the 80’s when they did bag lunches that you picked as you boarded the plane. I guess that is long gone, too. 🙂

  8. Hi Daraius and Emily:
    Happy Thanksgiving to you both.

    I did not miss out on obtaining a Barclays US Airways card and the miles that will post to my account soon. Thank you! But I will miss the opportunity to fly US Airways as I think industry competition in General is a good thing.

    Also I love the blog and read/learn from each of your posts.

  17. I will not miss the required round trip on award travel.

  18. We could use the points to attend my husband’s best friend’s wedding in June!

  19. First thing that comes to mind is the companion certificate.

  20. Never really fly US Airways before, so nothing, I guess?

  21. I will miss all the frequent flights to Philly.

  22. I will miss the competition and the opportunity to look for flights through a different system.

  26. I’ll miss the companion pass!

  27. I am going to miss seeing “US” in the name of a major carrier.

  30. I will miss their incompetent agents who often will unknowingly allow me to break their rules.

  31. I won’t miss US Airways Club. I really like Admirals Club better.

  32. Michael H.(oldfox)

  33. We’ll miss the award booking flexibility and customer service, but we love AA!

  46. Julia Abernethy

    I don’t think I have flown US air so I will not miss it.

  51. I don’t miss connecting CLT all the time.

  52. I will miss the $99 companion passes.

  54. Will miss the companion pass feature

  55. I’ll miss that U.S. Airways is going the way of AirTran Airways, America West Airlines, ValuJet, and Canadian Airlines, all who were merged in some way, and will soon be an after-thought to many. #Sad

  60. i will NOT miss us air’s half-ass entertainment options and narrow pitch on the domestic routes i typically have flown from their hub in philly.

  61. I will miss them at my local airport, Newport News VA. I really hope they dont leave due to this merger. PS my US Airway pilot friend said that US Airways bought AA, not the other way around.

  62. I got into the points game this year and I’ll miss that I found out about how awesome US airways is too late!!! I wish I would have an extra 80k miles to book 2 first class tickets to asia via europe in first class! Oh well, life goes on 😉

  63. Hi,

    I will miss the far more flexible and generous routing rules – eg USA to Australia via HKG. Getting Qantas seats is just next to impossible.
