Okay, once done deal, as it looks like it will be, the question I have:

Which program will stay in place? I assume AAdvantage.

How early can I start flying US Airways and allow mileage to be credited to AAdvantage?

I hope they keep US' policy on fuel surcharges. The main reason I do not collect AA miles is because of the fuel surcharges they charge on BA award tickets. For what they cost, I might as well just buy a ticket and earn some more miles! US (and most other US carriers) do not charge fuel surcharges which is much friendlier to my wallet.

Quoting tonytifao (Thread starter):

It's been widely reported that this will be the case. For your other questions, the merger hasn't even been formally announced yet. Be patient.

Hallelujah! The fuel surcharge is less-known diabolical feature feature of BA's EC program. It is an outrageous surcharge and pretty well puts the kibosh on any Y award travel. Its also much harder to deal with the gimlet-eyed EC team when trying to get credit for older miles. I do hope AA goes with US' FF program, but it is unlikely given the AA/BA transatlantic alliance.

Well I certainly hope award levels stay the same as they are in the AAdvantage program! 325,000 miles (recently reduced from 350,000) for a "Peak" business class seat RT to Europe .... Compared to 200.000 miles for an AAdvantage AAnytime award and 250,000 miles for an AAdvantage AAnytime First Award!

WTH ???!!!
