America West & US Airways Announce Frequent Flyer Changes

US Airways announced changes to its Dividend Miles program in the wake of its merger with America West.  Some changes people aren’t thrilled about:  America West’s 15,000 mile short-haul award is gone, US Airways’ 20,000 mile award for Elite members appears to be gone, and gold elite members now only receive a 50% mileage bonus instead of 100%.  On the positive side. rewards no longer require a Saturday night stay.  Incidentally, US Airways put out a handy press release outlining some travel tips and info if you’re flying either airline in the coming weeks.
