Yes, they are both members of the Star Alliance. So, for being gold on USAirways, you are automatically "Star Gold," across the entire Star Alliance network. The benefit of first class upgrades (unfortunately) is NOT one that you will be able to get when flying on Continental. That being said, most other benefits are reciprocal. For example, priority ...

I don't believe that the Continental and US Airways programs are directly integrated. It looks like you can earn US Airways miles on some Continental tickets. US Airways and Continental are Star Alliance carriers. So, if you're a member of one of their frequent traveller programs (with sufficient status) then you'll get benefits on other Star Alliance ...

Depends on the airline rules and the fare you booked. Generally, if the ticket is refundable - everything should be refundable. The government doesn't charge fees and taxes if you didn't travel. The airline - might. How to figure the exact fees - your travel agent can probably help you with that, they have that break-down. If you booked online - you might ...

I haven't tried it personally, but you might also try moving points back and forth between airlines using something like Points.com.

Unfortunately, Dividend Miles is a "dead-end" program. The WebFlyer Mileage Converter turns up nothing, and even a ruinous Points.com conversion is now impossible. Some of this reflects general cutbacks in frequent flyer programs and some of it reflects the pending merger with American Airlines. Dividend Miles will almost certainly be merged into the much ...

At the moment you cannot earn miles on US Airways in your American Airlines AAdvantage account: At this time, American and US Airways will remain separate companies and each company will maintain its current loyalty program. No-one knows for sure what will ultimately happen with the programs - possibly even American and US Airways at this stage - ...

If past merger information is any indication of what will happen you can take a look at recent mergers of United and Continental. The accounts of frequent flyers have been merged into one without the loss of miles. So until the announcement from AA and USAir come out you could operate under the assumption that your miles will remain intact.

You don't say how many points you have or what airlines you normally fly with, but... Firstly, keep in mind that US Airways is likely to merge with American Airlines at some stage in the not to distant future. At that time, the miles for the two programs will merge into one - so if you collect AA miles then these miles would suddenly become useful to you! ...

It's a little bit of a grey area, but as a rule when your flights change due to circumstances beyond your control (including schedule changes like this, delayed flights, etc) then the price you pay - including fees - doesn't change, regardless of any differences in either the fare or taxes. In this case the difference in taxes and fees would be around $11 ...

There are actually three ways your luggage can get from A to B and it's possible that different airlines use different words for it: carry-on. You carry or pull it with you everywhere, including onto the airplane. If it's larger than the limits they publish on the website, you'll be forced to check it and possibly pay the checked bag fee checked. You hand ...

Firstly, if he got a stamp in his passport, that may be the easiest - have a look through his passport for entry stamps for August 2009, and that may give you the answer you're after. Second option - try US Airways. With his full name, some other proof of ID, they may be able to locate the flight. Thirdly - did he use a travel agency? They'll likely still ...
