Combining AAdvantage miles

Combining AAdvantage miles

    So I’m still fairly new to the whole miles thing, but me and my family are travelling (paid) on a ~12,000 mile round-trip, all on American Airlines. Is it possible to accrue all these miles under one account without having to pay mile sharing fees? Obviously one account with 36,000 miles is far better than three with 12,000.

    Thanks,

    Nora

    No, AA does not let a family pool miles but British Airways does. As I understand it each person would still have their own FF number on their ticket, but BA allows you to pool the accounts on the website. (Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.)

    BA Avios are great for short haul routes as the BA program is distance-based, meaning the greater the distance, the more miles charged. But to use BA miles on domestic AA flights there must be SAAver award space available. Each segment is priced separately and domestic first class tickets are 3x the price of economy.

    You would essentially create a BA Household Account that combines the miles of everyone in the household. It’s great for families with little children. And when you redeem, the miles come out of each member account proportionately to the amount of miles that member has, which is an excellent way to defer Avios expiration dates since a redemption qualifies as an activity.
