Airline Credit Cards - Reviews
An airline rewards card may seem like a no-brainer if you are a loyal customer of a particular airline, but frequent travelers of all stripes can reap great benefits from these cards. Airline cards come with some of the most generous sign-up bonuses in the rewards card industry, as well as very valuable perks such as free checked bags and discounted companion fares. The free airfare earned and the savings on travel expenses can easily outmatch the cost of a yearly membership fee.
We've reviewed and rated airline cards based on their value and utility. We calculate and compare the value of sign-up bonuses and rewards miles. We also consider how easy it is to redeem those miles, and the overall coverage that the airline offers, to help you select an airline card that takes you where you really want to go.

Cathay Pacific Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: April 6, 2018
With a high annual fee and some disappointing airline benefits, the appeal of the Cathay Pacific Visa Signature card is mostly limited to cardholders looking for additional ways to get bonuses on Asia Miles.
United TravelBank card from Chase
Last reviewed: February 8, 2018
The TravelBank card allows United flyers to earn rewards without an annual fee and to redeem rewards without having to collect a ton of miles, but – with the overly restrictive redemption options and lack of airline perks – it begs the question: Why not just get a regular cash back card? This offer is no longer available.
LifeMiles Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: November 15, 2017
The LifeMiles Visa Signature card is a decent card for fans of Avianca Airlines; but, unless you travel frequently to Central America or Colombia, you won’t get much value out of this airline card. This offer is no longer available.
LANPASS Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: January 5, 2018
Cardholders who travel frequently to South America may be able to carve out some savings with this mediocre airline card; but the card’s pricey fee and subpar rewards limit its appeal. This offer is no longer available.
