View from the Wing reports that US Airways flyers will soon get 500-mile upgrade certificates based off their previous travel–despite also getting unlimited upgrades during that travel time.
According to reports, US Airways flyers will receive the certificates to use on their American flights while they still get their unlimited benefits on US Airways flights, based on their last 12-months of travel.
There are no reports of reciprocal benefits on US Airways for American flyers–which makes sense. Why build a system you are just going to destroy soon anyway?
Either way, this is yet another way the merger has been a benefit to US Airways flyers without necessarily benefiting the American flyers.
The cookies are sub-par? We’re all like–Dude, free cookies!
The sub-par meals are still an improvement over typical US Airways
And my last US Airways first class flight I got thanked for being a passenger. Whoa.
