I mentioned about 2 months ago (I don't remember if it was here or on DDMS) that American said they will keep a relationship with a whole bunch of airlines including Aegean after 03/31.

US Airways will retain A3 and a bunch of *A airlines as partners!
Ostensibly, this means that A3 *G can use those benefits on US after 3/30!

Do you think I'll be able to launder an account that way?...

I very highly doubt it. AA has become crazy with the duplicate accounts.
For most people it has become impossible to create new accounts even when changing every piece of information. AA corpsec are worth their salt.

Not a targeted offer.

You have to have a Dividends Miles account already, so yes, not 100% a public offer.

I'm a Air Berlin Topbonus Gold member (matched from TK Elite), and thus OneWorld Sapphire elite. I'm flying with family on US Air using one of those companion certificates and wanted to enjoy the OneWorld elite benefits now that US is part of the alliance (i.e. free checked bags...)

Question is, do i have to include my Air Berlin FF number in the reservation to get the benefits? or can i just show them my elite status and get the benefits that way?

Also, if i assign the Air Berlin FF# to the reservation, can i than switch back to US or AA FF#? as i have intention of gathering Air Berlin miles. (i used to switch FF#s on delta all the time, but not very familiar with US).
