And eventually, the US Airways name will disappear altogether as they become one airline with American...

According to several reports I have read, US will join oneworld in the first quarter of 2014 but exit *A as quickly as possible.

Given that US and AA will offer reciprocal frequent flyer benefits starting 7 January, I suspect this all may be connected but I am far from certain - esp. because I've read about 50 stories on this today.

Are you sure? I read from an AA source it's January 20th, 2014. Do you have a source?

Why would you see a US logo on the oneworld website? US airways, as of January 7th, 2014 will no longer exist. It will officially be known as AA.



I'm not complaining, I'm critiquing...

Yea does make sense to even put the name on the OneWorld site if the name will disappear? How long will the US name be around?

Not exactly. As far as I understand, US Airways will continue to exist as an entity for quite some time.

This may have been answered before, but what about integration of frequent flyer miles? Will a customer with both just have their US Air miles added to their AAdvantage number?

You are likely asking about something that is still 6-12+ months away from being done.

I think it was Kirby that said the FF programs would be merged in January.

I wonder what kind of impact this will have on UA.

From my perspective, very little. I have been a loyal UA flyer for 20 years out of ORD and never flown US. I haven't been avoiding US but whenever US came up as an option when booking a flight, UA always had a better option. Even my wife who is Platinum on UA only has needed to fly them a few times.

But I assume that if you are loyal to UA and you don't live in a UA hub city, that US comes into play much more.

Not quite. The 2 programs will be integrated. I believe this is what you are referring to:

Quote:
January 7, 2014, however, will be “a big day for us,” Scott Kirby, who will serve as COO of the combined airline, told Frequent Business Traveler. “We will become a single airline or at least take the first step of becoming a single airline” on that day, and offer reciprocal frequent flyer benefits.

I have flown US quite a few times this year, and they were significantly cheaper than UA. Plus I got UA mileage plus award redemptions during last peak season Christmas/New Year time to Europe on US only a month in advance. I will miss US airways and this means that UA will get away with higher prices from their hubs.

In keeping with the thread title- which oneworld members will US get coziest with first (after AA obviously).
Im particularly interest in the new AA's relationship with TAM ad QR going forward. I think those two represent significant and exciting opportunities for US Airwyas/ AA to capitalize on in the short to medium term.

I have a feeling this will be either oneWorld planes or some of the first US planes in the AA colors. It's a shame, I'm certainly going to miss US Airways.
