Question Question about giving miles to a family member...

Okay, guys -- this is my first time. Please be gentle with me.

I've searched for this answer and can't find it addressed anywhere, so here goes:

My brother has some USAir miles that he said I could have for a vacation I'm planning. When we log in to his account on the US Air Dividend MIles website -- we can't find anywhere that allows us to transfer miles (except to their charity programs).

Can a USAir frequent flyer give his miles to somene else?

Thanks,

KL

The short answer is no.

He can book an award ticket in your name, but you can't switch actual miles into another account.

Sorry.
