Two months ago I wrote that US Airways would be losing five of its Star Alliance partners over the course of 2014.
Another one bites the dust in five days! June 29, 2014 is the last day to use US Airways miles to book Air New Zealand flights.
Note that Air New Zealand flights need only be booked by June 29. You can book US Airways awards up to about 335 days in advance. That means you can fly awards containing Air New Zealand flights until about May 30, 2015.
The US Airways® Premier World MasterCard® is currently offering 40,000 bonus miles after first purchase. You can’t get the miles in time to book Air New Zealand, but you can get them in time to book the other partners US Airways is losing like Turkish and Singapore at the end of July.
- What are the current restrictions on booking Air New Zealand flights with US Airways miles?
- What if you want to change your US Airways/Air New Zealand award later?
- How is Air New Zealand award space?
- What other partners is US Airways losing soon?
