Got Wings? Be prepared to give them up. This is not to say you are going to be flightless. In fact, your flight benefits will increase – with access to all American Airlines flights as well as your current US Airways benefits. We’ll just be accessing them without Wings, the venerable US Airways employee/retiree portal. In the fullness of time, all current US Airways employees and retirees will use the AA Jetnet intranet instead of Wings. Adding thousands of people to the platform will take time, say the leaders of the new American Airlines. So they will be phasing in various groups. Yeah, we know, we’re retirees. The betting is that we likely will be among the last folks to be added to Jetnet. But stand by
For the moment, though, we still can use Travel US on Wings and access MyIDTravel on Wings. On the MyIDTravel portal, we can book/list ourselves on all AA flights, and now without even the very generous ZED discount we have had for the last year as the airlines planned the merger. Now we are one, US Airways retirees pay nothing but a $2 MyID charge for each leg of any AA flight.

The new AA
This is the website for retirees from US Airways and the associated companies that helped build it into one of the best airlines in North America. Now, as the new American Airlines, we are part of the largest airline in the world.. The LAS chapter has led the national group in merging with the AA Vanguards, the retiree organization of American Airlines.
This website will stay in place for just a few months more. Like the name US Airways itself, it will be consigned to the dustbin of history. So it is, then, a dead man walking. In April, our contract ends with our website host. It will not be renewed and the site will go out of existence. Find more information about the Vanguards at www/aavanguardscities.com
