List of Airline Alliances (updated March 17, 2016)

The list of airline alliances needs an update from last time. Most of the changes came with the main airline affiliates (which I identified below in bullet format).

As you already know, I collect miles for at least 1 airline per alliance:

  • Star Alliance: Air Canada (Aeroplan)
  • Oneworld: British Airways (Executive Club) and American Airlines (AAdvantage)
  • SkyTeam: Delta Air Lines (Delta SkyMiles)

The main reason for this diversity is in case I need to purchase an airline ticket (as oppose to redeeming miles for a reward flight), I can load up my miles to any of the frequent flyer programs without missing out on earning.

Below is a list of all the memberships within 3 major airline alliances, along with changes in brackets:
