Airline alliances: Where can I earn/use frequent flier miles?
Planes at LAX. (Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times)

You can often earn frequent-flier miles on your primary airline by flying with an airline partner. Here is a list of some of the major airline alliances and participating airlines. "FF" denotes the number to call for frequent-flier information. Sometimes airlines use different numbers; other times, the reservations number and the frequent-flier number are the same.
