AOPA aviation expert says it’s a matter of “quality” when choosing a travel company.
The American Aviator Mastercard and American Airlines Mastercard are among the most popular, with more than 1 billion cards issued in 2015.
However, the American Aviation Mastercard, which had the highest annual growth rate, and the American Airlines Premier Mastercard have seen their annualized rates decrease.
“The American Aviators and American Aviacredit are very similar, and they are two of the largest companies,” said Alan C. Stang, chief executive officer of the Association of American Pilots, or AAIP.
“If you’re going to fly on one, you have to be willing to pay a premium.
That’s why you pay for a lot of those.”
The AAIP is an association of about 60,000 aviation pilots.
Stangs said he is unsure of the reason why American has seen a decline in the number of cardholders since the airline’s launch.
“You don’t have the same kind of customer loyalty as American and if you don’t get a premium on the card, you’re not going to buy a ticket,” he said.
The AAIPS is an affiliate of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions.
AAIP also has an alliance with the National Air Cargo Association, a trade association representing commercial airlines.
The AAA has also seen its growth rate decline since the beginning of the year.
Stands said he believes AAIP has made some strides in the past two years.
He noted that the association has invested in improving customer service and marketing to get more customers to fly.
However he added that the company has yet to implement any changes in terms of fare pricing.
“I think they’re working on that and I think that’s what’s going to help,” he told ABC News.
“We have a lot to do.
There’s still a lot more to do.”
American Airlines has also been a hot topic recently as it has experienced a string of major disasters in the last year.
In September, a bomb exploded in Chicago, injuring nearly 1,000 people.
The airline’s CEO apologized for the incident.
In March, American Airlines announced it was moving its flights from the Chicago area to Louisville, Kentucky, where a bomb threat was received, but the company said it is moving ahead with the flights.
“Our customers deserve the best service that we can provide,” the airline said in a statement.
“They deserve to know that we are working diligently to provide them the best possible service.”
