oneworld Airlines Offer You the World

American Airlines and its
oneworld Alliance partners are offering AAdvantage(R) members 15,000 bonus
miles to encourage them to sample more of oneworld’s unrivaled
international network and award-winning service.
The bonus is in addition to the miles normally earned for travel on the
airlines in the alliance. So those bonus miles could help take you from
Albuquerque or Accra to Zimbabwe or Zurich, or anywhere else in between
served by the alliance’s eight member airlines and their 17 associated
carriers. The oneworld airlines collectively serve more than 575
destinations around the globe.

To qualify for the bonus, just purchase tickets and fly on American
Airlines and at least two other oneworld member airlines between Oct. 1
and Nov. 30, 2004. The other oneworld members are Aer Lingus, British
Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, LAN and Qantas. Eligible fares
include First Class, Business Class, or full-fare Economy Class. (See
Notes below).

You must register for the bonus before flying by calling the AAdvantage
Dial-In system at 1-800-882-8880. Follow the prompts and enter promotion
code OW5YR (69597) when asked. Or, you may register on-line at , using the promotion code OW5YR.

Full details of the bonus offer are available on each airline’s frequent
flyer program website, with links to them all from the oneworld home page
at .

oneworld Managing Partner John McCulloch said, “The bonus is just that—
a bonus, in addition to the regular rewards earned for each of those
flights. It’s a way of highlighting to customers new and old that if their
travels take them beyond their regular airline’s schedules to other parts
of oneworld’s unrivaled international map, they’ll receive the same high
level of care, service, support and frequent flyer privileges from all
other carriers in our group.”


Since oneworld was launched five years ago, members of its partner
airlines’ frequent flyer programs have been able to earn miles and tier
status points when they fly on eligible fares on any other airline in the
alliance. And they have been able to redeem them across the entire
grouping’s network, covering more than 135 countries and territories.

Besides frequent flyer awards, privileges include tier points toward
higher frequent flyer program membership status, which in turn leads to
lounge access, priority check-in and wait listing whenever you fly with
any oneworld carrier anywhere in the world.

oneworld’s eight airlines and their affiliates carried more than 220
million passengers last year on a combined fleet of almost 2,000 aircraft
operating more than 7,500 flights a day.
