If you're a member of American Airlines' AAdvantage program, your award booking options just got a little better.
According to this American Airlines press release, they are partnering up with British Airways and Hawaiian Airlines.
The release says:
American Airlines AAdvantage® members can now book award travel via AA.com on British Airways, a oneworld® alliance member and joint business partner, and on Hawaiian Airlines, an AAdvantage participating airline. These expanded options offer customers a more convenient way to book one-way, round-trip and multi-city award travel on one or a combination of participating airlines on AA.com.
In addition to Hawaiian Airlines and British Airways, you can also book award travel on Alaska Airlines as well, all from the convenience of the AA.com website.
On November 29, 2011 AMR Corp (American's parent company) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Earlier this year US Airways hinted that they might be interested in a takeover. As of this writing, the merger is still on the table, but there have been no formal plans released.
