American Airlines Frequent Flyer Program Aug 04, 2009
I always get the questions asked "How do you manage to travel a lot?", "how do you afford it?" . . . well for starters I began traveling as part of my job and later made it a passion. One thing I have always done is get enrolled in the frequent flyer or advantage programs provided by the airline I fly. One such airline is American Airlines Advantage programme. Here are some of the pros and cons of having the AAdvantage program

Pros (Positives):

1. Earn immediate miles for the segments of travel on American Airlines

2. Accumulate miles for upto 3 years

3. Apply earned miles towards your dream vacation

4. Flight upgrades available

5. Fly partner airlines lile American Eagle, or more of the many partners of AA

6. Earn miles through partner companies that are not part of airline industry

7. Redeem miles for free travel, car rentals, spa and the Admirals club

8. Free e-mail updates on promotions

9. Online secure access to your program miles and account

10. Participate in the Oneworld Alliance promotion

11. Toll free calling using their 800#

12. It is free to join the program

Cons (Negative)

1. You can not earn miles if you purchase a ticlet for someone else

2. You can not apply partial miles towards a ticket

3. Too many miles required for a free ticket

4. Customer service for the AA is not easy to get a hold of due to the lengthy automated system

Ok, thanks. I have a planitum travel card already so I do not apply for airline credit cards. But that is a good idea for someone who wants extra miles, but remember with the credit card you are also paying interest that is higher than your bank would offer.

Harriet, when I said the AA card I meant the AA credit card and you earn miles on the price of the ticket and not the flight segment of the other person.
