Dividend Miles versus FlightFund

I hadn't heard this was for sure. All I'd heard to this point was that the new combined program would "feature the best aspects of both programs" or something to that effect.

Is this definitive?

when will the schedules be updated and flights recoded from HP to US? i am guessing if i book an HP flight now, for a flight at the end of October (HP is the only airline that flies to GYM), that by the time i fly, it will be recoded to US and i will be able to get UA EQM's for the flight. does this seem correct? i really hope so!

Don't count on it. The merger will start as a codeshare where reservation agents will need to advise "Mr./Mrs. Paseenger you are confirmed on America West flight 9090 operated by USAirways" and vice versa. We are "hopefull" this will be ready to start on October 1. All things in this industry are STC!
The HP codeshare we had with CO was the same way...not sure if you will be able to get UA EQM's for this flight that soon. Maybe is the best answer I can provide right now!

so it is probably best to wait until oct 1st when the flights should change to us flights and just book them as us flights... thanks for the info...
