American Airlines is ending its frequent-flier partnership with Israeli carrier El Al.
American announced the change on its website, saying, “Effective November 1, 2014, flights taken on El Al will not accrue AAdvantage miles due to the discontinuation of American's frequent flier relationship with EL AL.”
All award travel on EL AL must be booked and ticketed by October 31, 2014. Travel is valid one year after ticket date, and must be completed by October 31, 2015. No changes to the EL AL segments are allowed during that period.
