AAdvantage Executive Platinum and Platinum Pro

AAdvantage status members receive up to two complimentary checked
bags when traveling on JetBlue and TrueBlue Mosaic members can
also now check two complimentary checked bags at American Airlines

member, which is why, together with American, we’re extending more
great benefits to our travelers when they are flying on
American-operated flights,” said Don Uselmann, Vice President

to add value to our Northeast Alliance by also extending
additional perks and flexibility to American’s status members when
they fly JetBlue. It’s another win as we continue to add value to
our loyalty programs.”
