America West Announces New Awards Partnership

America West Airlines today
announced a marketing relationship with Awards for Mortgage and Real
Estate(TM). This new partnership enables members of FlightFund(R), America
West’s frequent flyer program, to earn miles for real estate transactions,
new mortgages, refinancing, home equity loans and van line services.

“Our new partnership with Awards for Mortgage and Real Estate offers
FlightFund(R) members yet another outstanding opportunity to earn award
travel,” said Ken Feldman, vice president, marketing. “Awards for Mortgage
and Real Estate makes a great addition to FlightFund(R)‘s portfolio of
more than 50 partners.”

FlightFund(R) members can earn miles while obtaining competitive rates on
mortgage and home equity loans from four of the nation’s leading mortgage
lenders: Chase Home Finance (the mortgage division of JPMorgan Chase &
Co.), Washington Mutual, Inc., Wachovia Mortgage Corporation’s Corporate
Mortgage Services Division, and more. FlightFund(R) members will enjoy a
streamlined loan process, competitive rates and a variety of home loan
products, including zero down payment options and access to local real
estate agents and van line companies.

Miles can be earned in the following increments on home transactions: *
1,300 miles for each $10,000 financed, refinanced or borrowed as a home
equity loan on the closing date. * 3,000 miles for each $10,000 of home
purchase and/or sale price. * 1,000 miles for each $1,000 of approved,
participating van line moving services. * 5,000 additional bonus miles
when combining multiple services. * Bonus miles for FlightFund(R) Elite

For a limited time, FlightFund(R) members can rack up even more miles with
a special bonus offer. For new home loan applications received between now
and May 31, 2004, 1,800 miles will be awarded for every $10,000 financed
or refinanced at closing—a bonus of 500 miles per $10,000. For
eligibility, reservation code LN500 must be submitted at the time of
registration. To qualify for this or any other special offer, all home
loan applications or requests for other services must be submitted either
online at or by
phone at 1-877-747-0300. Home loan applications or requests for other
services submitted through any other means are not eligible to earn miles
in this program. For more information and complete terms and conditions,

FlightFund(R) miles may be redeemed for award travel to more than 300

generous frequent flyer programs in the industry with short-haul domestic
award travel beginning at 15,000 miles year-round. FlightFund(R) has more
