    If I get AA can I use it towards US airways challenge. Will it count towards that?

    The Flight Deal 8 years ago Reply

    @Adi – it will count as long as it is AA metal and aa flt number. the particular routing we have listed (jfk-nrt-sgn-nrt-jfk) would not work as it is operated by JAL with AA flt numbers. the best routing would be:

    jfk/lga – dfw – hkg – sgn – hkg – dfw – lga/jfk. that routing would guarantee you will earn 19k miles for the challenge. the hkg-sgn-hkg segments would not count as they are operated by Cathay Pacific.
