Why We Like It

The American AAdvantage program is one of the best if you want to book business and first class flights on Oneworld airlines such as Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, and Qatar Airways.

However, American’s only transfer partners are Bilt Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy so miles can be tough to earn. With the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select, you can earn American miles directly. If you’re a frequent American flyer, you can also earn Loyalty Points toward status when you spend on the card.
