Yes, this has been discussed here before, maybe even reported on MS.

The question is l'mai nafka mina? Can anyone answer that or even suggest a possible answer to that?

No nafka mina. AAdvantage is going to be the new miles program for US i.e. no more Dividend, so they're rebranding the card.

And Barclay's will only have a short window as a co-issuer of the AAdvantage card.

It'll ultimately only be Citi who issues them.

This card will probably just be sent out to everyone who has US as a replacement.

I wasn't comparing the programs. He asked about the card changing. If DM is gone, then this card will be an AA card. No big deal.

Correct, I am asking strictly about the card being Barclay vs. Citi. Any nafka mina?

How bad is the expected devaluation supposed to be... should I bother trying to accumulate a lot of aa/dm miles?

but from the email sent out it's clear that there will be one program and it will be as we all have expected AA

There is PROBABLY 2 things that will change
1) the 5k discount (imagine 15k ow to Europe :P)
2) When spending 25k on the card 10k towards status
I assume that these benefits will be gone
