To celebrate Air Berlin’s new membership in the OneWorld alliance, American and British Airways are both offering double miles for travel on Air Berlin through May 15, 2012.

American’s promotion is valid for flights operated and marketed by Air Berlin, as well as American codeshare flights operated by Air Berlin. The following fare classes are eligible for mileage accrual on Air Berlin through this promotion: J, C, D, I, Y, B, H, K, M, L, V or N. Registration is required using code ABDBL.

British Airways’ promotion doesn’t require registration, and is also valid for all Air Berlin flights. Their mileage accrual chart for travel on Air Berlin is as follows:

While Air Berlin has been a partner with American and British Airways for a while now, what I’m most excited about is being able to include Air Berlin flights on American’s distance based OneWorld awards, which are among the best values in the industry. While Air Berlin is more or less a low cost carrier, I’m still excited to have a bigger German presence in the OneWorld alliance, given that American has a single daily flight to Germany (between Dallas and Frankfurt).

  1. FYI, it’s all oneworld frequent flyer programmes that are participating in the Air Berlin double miles offer, not just BA and AA.

  2. Question: What makes you think AB is “more or less a low cost carrier”? I can see no attributes I would connect with a LCC. This is over for years.
