Does anyone know why Marriott terminated their partnership with American Airlines? I called American and was told that Marriott did it--not American. We live in the Dallas area and American is about our only option.
Hard to find responses from AA or MARR to queries, but both have released official statements. There is also much conjecture on this subject which may in fact go beyond actual facts. Nonetheless, you can check out the speculation within several threads on both Flyertalk.com and Boardingarea.com. Much of the talk has AA raising its price per mile beyond the range paid by Marriott to other airline partners.
