In the next few weeks you’ll be able to earn miles in the program of your choice — USAirways Dividend Miles or America West FlightFund — when flying on either airline. Sometime in 2006 miles from both accounts will be merged together.
- The two airlines have started to release some information regarding their frequent flier plans. Starting this fall, members of US Airways Dividend Miles plan and America West’s FlightFund plan can earn and redeem miles throughout the new airlines’ combined route system.
Next year, the miles will all be combined into a single Dividend Miles account. And the miles will not expire as long as your account is open, officials of the airlines said.
- The airlines speculate that “Day 1” of the merged airline could be as early as Tuesday, Sept. 27.
