Remember: You can earn Avios when you fly with United Airlines

United Airlines is a prominent member of the Star Alliance so it will come as no shock to most readers that flights booked with United can be credited to loyalty programs such as KrisFlyer (Singapore Airlines), Miles & More (Lufthansa Group), and Aeroplan (Air Canada) as well as to United’s own MileagePlus program. It may, however, be a little surprising to find out that United Airlines flights can also be used to earn Avios – a major currency used by airlines in the oneworld alliance.

How to use Citi ThankYou Points to book great value American Airlines awards

One of the oddities in the miles and points world has long been the fact that Citi's ThankYou points don't transfer over to the American Airlines AAdvantage program. For years, Citi had a monopoly on the issuance of American Airlines co-branded credit cards (it still issues four of the airline's six available credit cards) but apart from a brief period in 2021, AAdvantage has never been a full-time ThankYou transfer partner.

Indirectly, British Airways is now a Citi ThankYou transfer partner

An important change that took place in the miles and points world earlier this year had the knock-on effect of making Citi's ThankYou points a little more valuable and it's that knock-on effect that I'll discuss in this article.

My first-world lounge problem when traveling as a family
