To use your Alaska miles on American Airlines, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Alaska Airlines website or use their mobile app.
  2. Select “Use miles” while searching for a flight.
  3. The search results will include award travel options on partner airlines, including American Airlines.
  4. Filter the results to show only American Airlines flights.
  5. Select the American Airlines award flight you want to book and proceed with the booking process using your Alaska Mileage Plan miles[1].

As an Alaska Mileage Plan member, you can earn miles when flying with American Airlines and other oneworld Alliance member airlines. Mileage earned and elite-qualifying miles are based on a percentage of actual flight miles flown[2]. When you fly on Alaska Airlines, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage miles, and enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage status[3].

Keep in mind that Alaska Mileage Plan redemption rates depend on the partner airline and the regions you’re traveling between[1]. For example, you can fly within the contiguous U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America on Alaska Airlines for 17,500 AAdvantage miles in economy or 27,500 miles in business/first class each way[1].

Please note that starting May 1, 2023, Alaska Airlines basic economy flights will earn AAdvantage miles at a rate of just 10% of flight miles[4]. However, Alaska Airlines Saver basic economy fares (X fare class) on flights operated by Alaska still earn 100% of flight miles when credited to Alaska’s Mileage Plan program[4].
