Self-Service Combining of Your USAirways and America West Frequent Flyer Accounts

In the Spring, USAirways and America West are going to combine their frequent flyer programs.

But if you want to combine miles in your account, perhaps it will help you claim an award now or you want to use miles from one program to take advantage of the award chart of the other, you don’t have to wait.

America West frequent flyers can move their miles to USAirways, and vice versa, on their own with no restrictions. (America West miles can be used to claim USAirways Star Alliance awards now!)

Just go to and register your USAirways and America West frequent flyer numbers. You won’t be charged a fee, and you can swap miles between the two accounts at a 1:1 ratio instantly.

Join the free service. If you’re not already a member, you can get points with your choice of program just for signing up:

I believe I’ve seen other offers as well, perhaps from American Airlines or even Delta, but didn’t see those this morning when composing this post.
