This is officially the last call for the US Airways Dividend Miles award chart. As of 11:59 CDT tonight (March 25th) Dividend Miles redemptions will be disabled. The US Airways award chart will be no more.
On March 28th, they will begin moving Dividend Miles members into the AAdvantage program. This transition will take several days, and they need to halt redemptions prior to starting the process of moving over miles and account information.
You need to ticket any awards you want to book using US Airways miles right now since only 12 hours are left. You cannot leave awards on hold, they must actually be booked. I haven’t tried calling in today, but I would bet hold times are higher than normal, so don’t wait until the end of the day.
As a reminder, here are a few gems in the US Airways award chart.
- The US Airways award chart requires round trip travel, but gives you a stopover.
- The US Airways chart also awards US Airways cardholders a 5,000 mile discount if awards are booked 100% on US Airways operated flights.
- US Airways has pretty generous routing rules.
- 120,000 miles RT in first class to North Asia (you can have your stopover in Europe!)
- 110,000 miles RT in business class to the South Pacific
- 20,000 miles RT in economy to the Caribbean during the off-peak dates of September 1 – 30, 2015 (including 5k discount if you fly US metal and have the US credit card)
- Fewer miles required from North America to the Middle East in economy or business, and to Africa in all cabins.
If you want more info on the integration of the Dividend Miles and AAdvantage program, here is a post from a week or so ago about things you need to do ASAP in light of the pending integration of the two programs. View from the Wing also has a more recent post about the current status of the merger with info from the head of the AAdvantage program.
Anyone squeeze in a last minute US Airways redemption?
