End Of Redemption Of AA Miles On Taca!

Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:13 pm

Hi all,
i was just checking through my AAdvantage news for June and came across the cursory message below.
----------------
TACA participation ends June 30, 2006

As a reminder, June 30, 2006 is the last day to earn or redeem miles for TACA flights.
-------------------

Does anyone know the climate of the business decision that led to this eg. was it TACA's or American's or both?
Any help will be appreciated..
Thanks a lot,
Ruslan

TA signed a codeshare agrement with UA which was just approved a couple of weeks age. From now on, it will be UA´s mileage plus. There are many theories on the "why" of the change, but I´ll stick to my theory that UA and TA compliment there route structure better than with AA.
