US Airways Offering Up To 25k Bonus Miles On OneWorld Carriers

As part of their merger with American, US Airways will be leaving the Star Alliance on Sunday, and joining OneWorld on Monday, March 31st.

To celebrate, they are offering up to 25,000 bonus miles for flights on OneWorld carriers through June 30th, 2014.

US OneWorld

To be eligible, you must register your Dividend Miles number, and fly on OneWorld partner airlines during the promotional period. Of course you actually have to credit your miles to US Airways Dividend Miles in order to qualify for the promotion. The bonuses are tiered based on how many carriers you fly, as follows:

Unique OneWorld Partners FlownBonus Dividend Miles Earned
10
2500
32,500
45,000
515,000
625,000

The other terms of the promotion are as follows:

The max amount of bonus miles awarded for this promotion is 25,000 bonus miles. oneworld partner operated flights are defined as a segment of regularly scheduled passenger air service operated by oneworld partner airlines Air Berlin (“AB”), American Airlines (“AA”), British Airways (“BA”), Cathay Pacific (“CX”), Finnair (“AY”), Iberia (“IB”), Japan Airlines (“JL”), LAN Airlines (“LA”), Malaysia Airlines (“MH”), Qantas (“QF”), Qatar Airways (“QR”), Royal Jordanian (“RJ”), S7 Airlines (“S7”) and all eligible oneworld affiliate carriers. Flights operated by US Airways will not count for bonus miles for this promotion. Please note that flights marketed by a oneworld partner airline, but operated by another airline that is not part of oneworld are not eligible to receive bonus miles. Please inquire prior to making your booking if your flight is operated by a oneworld partner airline. Please ensure you include your Dividend Miles number when booking to receive mileage credit. Please allow up to 60 days for the bonus miles to apply to your Dividend Miles account.

Now, typically when a new airline joins the OneWorld alliance, all the other carriers will offer bonus miles for a promotional period as well, so hopefully those will be announced in the coming days.

  1. MAD to HEL via LHR outbound and TXL inbound. Seems like you could pick up 4 carriers right there.

  2. or better yet, do HEL to TXL to FRA to MAD on the inbound and you could get IB, BA, AY, AB and LA

  3. so if you buy a flight from mad to hel, and mad to lhr is on ba and from ba to hel is on ay, then you got 2 carriers and get 500?

  4. Best I see is BA/AY JFK-LHR-HEL IB/AA TXL-MAD-JFK for $1184.90 and O/W S7/AB HEL-DME-TXL for 455.80. With an overnight in HEL, 2 nights in TXL and 1 night in MAD. It gets you all 6 carriers so you earn 10910 flight miles and the 25k bonus. It comes out to about 4.5cents per mile not counting any elite bonus miles. If any one wants the dates and flight I can provide them.

  5. @ Lucky – any ideas on how we could get all six partners in one go? Someone on the blogs or forums must’ve figured it out by now! 🙂
