Our partnership with British Airways

British Airways connects you to nearly 250 destinations in 90 countries around the world from its major hub at London Heathrow. When you fly on British Airways, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on British Airways marketed and operated flights as well as British Airways codeshare flights operated by British Airways affiliate airlines BA Cityflyer, Comair or Sun-Air of Scandinavia, or other oneworld® carriers.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on British Airways, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.
