Combining AAdvantage and Dividend miles

Hello all,
I apologize if this has been asked, I've searched around but can't seem to find a clear answer. With the upcoming merger, I was wondering when, if at all, we will be able to combine Dividend and Aadvantage miles?

I am trying to plan a trip to Africa for the end of the year. As of now, I am Gold status with AA, and should be Platinum by the time of this trip.

My options are:

1. Use 75,000 AA miles to Nairobi, but with taxes, and all internal flights would have to pay $1260.30.
2. Buy a ticket outright on Lufthansa and pay $1990.94 (which includes all internal flight).


The Lufthansa flight is much easier (I wouldn't have to spend the night in Nairobi) but I just wanted to make sure that if I pay for that ticket outright, I would eventually be able to combine those miles that I earn with my AAdvantage account.

Does anyone know when, or if these points can be combined?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you will be able to combine the both accounts but the chances of that happening before the end of the year are slim. I remember that when UA and CO merged it took about 18 months before the two programs were merged.
