American Air/US Air merger flights out of Detroit
Well, as an avid Avios collector it has been well documented (google Avios benefits) that the merger of these 2 airlines benefits those of us that collect British Airways Avios. In case you are wondering why BA Avios, check our Avios page, but now there are more award flights available at GREAT DEDEMPTION RATES through AA and US Air.
AA Hubs are Dallas, New York City, LA, Miami and Chicago
US Air hubs are Charlotte, Philly, Washington,DC and Phoenix
As I was used to the AA Hubs, the new US Air hubs we have access to are pretty cool.
Why? Because 3 of them are only 9000 Avios round trip from Detroit!
Only Phoenix is 20,000 Avios round trip.
This is the key with Avios short haul trips. 9000 Avios plus $5 in taxes!!!
Do you know how easy it is to get 9000 Avios?
Well we have well documented how Amex is giving away these points – just see our Amex page.
But seriously, 1 credit card getting you 3 round trip flights after you spend $2000 on it. With no fee. That is an incredibly good deal.
I was checking May long weekend flights to these places and there was plenty of availability.
If you are single or have a partner to travel with and no kids, these are places you could be seeing with regularity.
For us living in the Detriot area these are such good redemptions – you should try it once, you’ll be hooked! (on free travel)
