The new option allows customers to use AAdvantage miles for travel to destinations including Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
"We received very positive feedback when we launched online booking for Alaska Airlines, British Airways and Hawaiian Airlines, and the demand for Qantas has been high," said Suzanne Rubin, president, AAdvantage loyalty program, in a statement. "Our AAdvantage members have been quite enthusiastic about the ability to book award travel on AA.com for AAdvantage participating airliness, and expanding to other carriers continues to be one of our main priorities."
American and Qantas are working together to offer customers more flights from more cities across the U.S. and Australia than any other airline partnership and
are optimizing their schedules to improve connection times for customers when traveling between the two countries, according to the airlines.--Tanya Irwin
