Pros and cons

Pros
  • 0% introductory APR for the first 15 billing cycles following each balance transfer that posts to your account within 45 days of account opening

  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • Has annual fee

The AAdvantage® Aviator® Red World Elite Mastercard®, issued by Barclays, offers perks that are tailored toward frequent American Airlines flyers.
It has an annual fee of $99 and features a sign-up bonus, companion pass, free checked bags, priority boarding and more.

But the benefits are specifically geared toward American Airlines. If that’s not your usual airline of choice, you may get more value out of other travel rewards cards.
