Post Great News for Italy Travel--Air One Joins Dividend Miles

Now, finally a way to get around italy easier on award tickets and accrue too! Hopefully they will join the star alliance!



US Airways Dividend Miles Welcomes Air One
Starting September 15, 2005, Dividend Miles members will be able to earn miles when flying one of Italy’s most respected airlines – Air One – and those miles will count towards earning Preferred status. Awards may be redeemed for travel on Air One within Italy or when traveling on a US Airways award ticket between North America and Italy.



In addition to friendly service, the Air One network provides 1,400 flights throughout Italy every week to 22 cities, including Rome, Milan, Palermo, Turin, Caselle and Venice. Plus, Air One flies to the more popular tourist resorts such as the islands of Lampedusa and Pantelleria.

Lounge Access for Preferred Members and Business Travelers
Dividend Miles Preferred members, along with customers flying Y Class on Air One are invited to visit the Air One Welcome lounge at the Rome Fiumicino airport, the Piermarini lounge at Milan Linate and the VIP lounges at the Turin, Genoa and Trieste. For further information click here.

There’s More Coming Soon…
US Airways will soon announce details of a codeshare partnership with Air One, scheduled to launch this coming fall. Customers traveling between Italy and North America will enjoy even greater convenience with connections via Rome to several cities served by Air One, single ticket pricing, through check-in and coordinated baggage handling.

I would not be surprised with them joining * alliance- they are majority owned by Lufthansa and you have been able to collect Miles and More LH miles on them for about 4 years. I have flown out of Trieste a couple of times- and could not even tell you where the lounge is- by the way this is a really tiny airport (think 6 check in desks total).
It is a good little airline- although only economy class- think Southwest and you are not far off target.

I just never remember seeing the AirOne lounge near the US departure gate at FCO. Maybe they'll move and perhaps AirOne will do some ground handling for US.

Sure here is the lounge link

Here is the award redemption chart

Unlikely. US uses the intercontinental terminal. AirOne flies from terminal A.

Also must be flying Air One to use the lounge.

"Lounges are reserved to Air One Y class flyers and Miles & More Senators with an accompanying person when flying with Air One."

How is it US' responsability to inform each Air One CSR/GA individually? That is Air One's job, not US'.

Now if I went up to a US rep and they weren't familiar about the partnership, then that is US' fault.
