Citi ThankYou could possibly add a new transfer partner this year. Or, at least we can hope, right? Now, if that’s the case, here’s a few quick points on why I’d like that partner to be American Airlines.
1) Citi ThankYou still doesn’t have a US-based legacy carrier partner. While those experienced in the travel industry probably have little issue maximizing the opportunities of Citi ThankYou’s foreign-based transfer partners, adding American Airlines will present more accessible offerings to beginners and casual travelers.
(Normally, I’d create a compare and contrast chart here. But several factors led to me deciding to apply for this position at the last minute. Sorry about that.)
5) It just makes sense. Citi and American clearly have a strong business relationship, as many of American’s credit cards are co-branded by Citi. And with American devaluing their program as of March 22, 2016, the numbers might finally come together enough to form that partnership.
Which airline would you like to see partner with Citi ThankYou?
