American Airlines has announced another round of musical chairs at Terminal 5, with a number of services moving to join British Airways at Terminal 5.
This will benefit anyone connecting to or from a British Airways short haul flight. It will also give American Airlines a breather whilst its Terminal 3 lounges are closed for refurbishment.
The following routes will operate from Terminal 5 from 27th March to 30th October:
- Dallas – Fort Worth
- Los Angeles
- New York JFK
The following routes will remain in Heathrow Terminal 3:
- Raleigh – Durham
It isn’t clear what the long term plan is for American Airlines at London Heathrow. Before covid, there was talk of introducing a US immigration station in Terminal 5C and moving all British Airways and American Airlines departures to the United States to the satellite.
You can read more about the terminal switch on the AA website here.

How to earn American Airlines miles from UK credit cards (March 2023)
American Airlines no longer has its own UK credit card.
There is, however, still a way to earn American Airlines miles from a UK credit card.
The route is via Marriott Bonvoy. Marriott Bonvoy hotel loyalty points convert to American Airlines miles at the rate of 3:1.
The best way to earn Marriott Bonvoy points is via the official Marriott Bonvoy American Express card. It comes with 20,000 points for signing up and 2 points for every £1 you spend. At 2 Bonvoy points per £1, you are earning (at 3:1) 0.66 American Airlines miles per £1 spent on the card.
