Compiled Major Airline Alliances List

Here is a compiled list of the 3 major airline alliances. Remember that earning one airline's miles means you can use it on any of its partner airlines within the alliance. For example, United Airlines (UA) is under Star Alliance. That means not only can UA miles be used for United Airlines flights, they can also be used to redeem Air China, Air New Zealand, Lufthansa, or any airline under Star Alliance.
