Alaska Airlines May Soon Be A Oneworld Connect Partner….But What Does That Even Mean?

If American Airlines was to sponsor Alaska’s entry into the oneworld connect program AAdvantage members would regain a lot of the benefits they lost when American pulled the plug on its relationship with Alaska Airlines.

Benefits like…

  • Earning AAdvantage Miles when flying on Alaska Airlines marketed and operated flights
  • Earning credit towards AAdvantage elite status when flying on Alaska Airlines marketed and operated flights
  • Having access to select Alaska Airlines lounges

Should this transpire it would be great news for US flyers (especially those of us on the West Coast)…but there has to be some doubt as to whether or not American would actually sponsor Alaska Airlines’ in the first place.
