American, JetBlue add frequent flier benefits to partnership
NEW YORK — American Airlines and JetBlue Airways said they have forged a deal that will allow passengers connecting in New York and Boston to get frequent flier miles on both airlines.
The deal is an addition to the partnership the pair formed in March.
Starting today, JetBlue customers will be able to connect on flights to 12 of American’s international destinations from JFK and Boston. American customers will be able to book nonstop JetBlue flights from JFK and Boston to 18 domestic spots that American doesn’t serve from those cities.
Passengers can book these tickets through travel agencies, most online travel agency websites and American Airlines ticket counters or by calling American Airlines reservations. The tickets aren’t yet available for sale on each other’s websites.
