With American Airlines and US Airways merging a big question is what will happen to the frequent flyer programs when they are combined into a new AAdvantage® program

But a piece of very good news just came out.
Suzanne Rubin, the current head of American AAdvantage® will remain in place after the merger, managing the combined program. She has a good reputation among frequent flyers and knows exactly the levers that drive high satisfaction with American Airlines miles. We hope that means the new program will not radically change from the current AAdvantage® program.
Her new boss though, will be from the US Airways side, but we hope her stature means a high level of influence from the AAdvantage® side of the house.
