When booking award travel, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all of the alliance information, partner airlines, and the destinations that you may be able to use to your advantage when booking an award ticket.
In this post, we’ll look at the American Airlines AAdvantage international partner gateway cities in the United States. As a reminder, a gateway city is the domestic departure city for an airline. For example, Qantas has a gateway out of Dallas, but not Washington D.C. Qantas flies directly to Australia from Dallas, but not from Washington DC (in fact, it doesn’t even have service there).
There’s a long list of gateway cities, but many of them are the same – such as JFK, LAX and DFW, for example. Since many of these partners are oneworld members, you’ll find a majority of the gateway cities in American Airlines hub cities, such as Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami and so on.
Take a moment to refresh yourself on these cities. Not only is it helpful to know that LAN only flies out of 4 U.S. cities, but it’s also helpful when planning an award trip, so you know which alternate U.S. to check availability for for the usually hard-to-come-by “over the water” legs.
