MIAMI — American Airlines will reward its AAdvantage and Dividend Miles customers for purchasing first and business class tickets based on distance flown, fare class purchased, and the member’s elite status level in 2015. According to the press release, American says this will “make the AAdvantage program the most generous in the industry.”

This promotion will be available to all customers, and no registration is necessary. However, the promotion applies to only American and US Airways marked flights that are flown and tickets are purchased between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.

Suzanne Rubin, the President of AAdvantage Loyalty Program, said: “As the largest airline in the world, with a global network that spans 54 countries, our frequent flyer program must also be the best in the business. A mile flown continues to be a mile earned in AAdvantage, and now we’re going to reward customers even more when they purchase a First or Business Class ticket.”

Meanwhile, American and US Airways are still on track to combine their frequent flier programs in the second quarter of 2015.

This news comes just days before Delta Air Lines will transition its SkyMiles frequent flier program from earning miles based on distance flown to based on ticket price and elite status level. Shortly after Delta announced this, United quickly followed suit.

So far, American has not made any similar changes to its program for 2015, other than merging the two programs.
