But one important to note is, Barclays will not be accepting any application for US Airways/AAdvantage credit card after the merger between American Airlines and US Airways is complete. These cards are only issued to existing card holders., Citi will be the exclusive issuer of the AAdvantage Credit card.
While it is not exactly know when Barclays will stop accepting new application, it may very well be possible that the existing US Airways Premier World MasterCard may end on March 31, 2015. If you do not have the card yet, you have limited time to get this card.
Barclays has 4 versions of Aviator cards, you may have an option to upgrade to Silver card ($195 annual fee and more benefits) or downgrade to Aviator card (No Annual fee and earns less miles)
Barclays is converting the existing US Airways card holders to AAdvantage Aviator Red card and there may be more options available if you choose to upgrade or downgrade.
This change is expected to happen starting Apr 01, 2015, If you do not have the US Airways Premier World MasterCard, you may be running out of time to get an easy 50,000 points.
