American's AAdvantage® members and JetBlue's TrueBlue members can earn miles or points when traveling in either of the two carriers. Plus, members from both programs can now earn elite qualifying currency on their trips.
The new JetBlue-American Airlines alliance (Northeast Alliance) provides customers with new routes from the northeast, more codeshare flights, enhanced schedules, premium experience when traveling between the northeast, and, which is more important, the ability to earn miles and elite-qualifying progress on either airline.
Now AAdvantage members can earn AAdvantage miles and elite qualifying miles for JetBlue-operated flights. However, there is an exclusion - you can't earn AAdvantage miles for travel on JetBlue between the United States and Europe.
AAdvantage members can now earn miles on three US airlines - American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and JetBlue. It means members now have more options to choose from and if American does not have the most convenient schedule, passengers can turn to Alaska and JetBlue.
TrueBlue members can earn TrueBlue points on flights with American Airlines, and those points will qualify towards Mosaic status. American Airlines flights earn the same amount of points as JetBlue flights when booked on jetblue.com or JetBlue app.
The Northeast Alliance between American Airlines and JetBlue resulted in the addition of 57 new routes from the northeast and an extension to 100 codeshare flights. Also, both airlines plan to add reciprocal mileage redemptions. That means you will soon be able to use AAdvantage miles for JetBlue flights, and vice versa.
