Earn More Points - Miles on AA & JetBlue Flights

Miles on AA & JetBlue Flights

JetBlue and American Airlines announced that American’s AAdvantage® members and JetBlue’s TrueBlue members will be able to earn miles or points, traveling on either carrier.

The new accrual agreement covers American flights operating with the JetBlue code within the carriers’ Northeast Alliance, as well as on all other American flights operating anywhere in the world. At the same time, American’s AAdvantage members can now accrue miles on all JetBlue flights within and beyond the Northeast.

Just in time for summer travel, we’re giving TrueBlue members more program value and versatility by offering the ability to earn TrueBlue points on thousands of daily flights operated by our Northeast Alliance partner, American Airlines,” said Don Uselmann, vice president loyalty & personalization, JetBlue.

“As JetBlue and American add more routes and new destinations to and from the Northeast, we’re able to enhance our Northeast Alliance so that our loyal customers can get rewarded more often.”

“One of the best things about our Northeast Alliance is the additional benefits it brings to customers. This includes more ways to earn miles and eventually more choice in how they use them, creating a truly valuable loyalty program,” said Alison Taylor, American’s Chief Customer Officer.

“Our partnership with JetBlue offers travelers more options to get to more places with ease, thanks to better schedules and on a more premium product.”

AAdvantage members were already able to earn miles on codeshare flights with JetBlue. However, today, they can also earn miles when traveling on any JetBlue marketed and operated flight in the Americas. When booking flights on aa.com or jetblue.com, customers can choose where to accrue their points. And for ease of doing business, members will earn miles the same way they do today on American, based on ticket price*.

*Based on ticket price (includes base fare plus carrier-imposed fees; excludes government-imposed taxes and fees).

Base points earned on American Airlines-operated flights count towards Mosaic status – JetBlue’s top earning loyalty program.

In the future, customers will also be able to redeem points or miles on either carrier. Further, the airlines are exploring opportunities to recognize JetBlue Mosaic customers and American’s AAdvantage elite members across both airlines. In addition to more details being announced to loyalty program members throughout this year, JetBlue and American will be revealing enhancements to the customer experience.
