Note: The “Metal” in “American Airlines Metal Award Chart” means that travel has to be on American Airlines airplanes i.e. the plane must be an American Airlines plane and codeshares are not allowed.

- American Airlines (AA) (One World Partner Award Chart)
- One World Airlines Distance Based Award Chart – This is great for trips where you will have many stopovers – since you can have up to 16 segments and 1 free stopover per segment
Redeeming miles on American Airlines and its partners is very easy. You can fly British Airways, from the US, almost anytime to Europe (though you have to pay fuel surcharges). And fly on Cathay Pacific to Asia, Jet Airways to India, or Qantas to Australia.
- Delta Sky Miles Award Chart - Delta makes it very hard to redeem miles, but there are quite a few good value awards – including to Europe, Australia, Bora Bora and the Seychelles – through partner airlines.
- US Air Dividend Miles Award Chart (US Metal Only) – It is a much better value to redeem US Air Dividend Miles on Partner Airlines.

US Air makes it very easy to acquire miles which can be redeemed fairly easily for Star Alliance awards. Their call center is pretty hit-and-miss, so hang-up and call back if you can’t get the award you’re looking for.
