Until mid-December, American Airlines is offering double elite-qualifying miles and double elite rewards for members of its AAdvantage frequent-flyer program.
The double elite-qualifying miles promotion allows customers to earn twice the elite status qualifying miles when they fly on American Airlines, American Eagle, and AmericanConnection by December 15. According to American, this means passengers will be able to reach elite status faster than normal, either for the first time or to re-qualify for their current elite status through February 2011.
Customers who qualify based on elite-qualifying miles need to accumulate 25,000 elite-qualifying miles for AAdvantage Gold status; 50,000 miles for AAdvantage Platinum; and 100,000 miles for AAdvantage Executive Platinum in a calendar year. For more information regarding qualifying for AAdvantage elite status, visit www.aa.com/elitestatus.
The elite rewards promotion gives AAdvantage elite-status members the opportunity to add to the benefits they receive ― and American says they can get there faster by combining this with American’s double elite-qualifying miles offer. The special rewards vary based on the customer’s elite status level as of December 31.
AAdvantage Executive Platinum members who earn 125,000 or more elite-qualifying miles or points during 2009 will be eligible to select two of the following rewards: two one-way systemwide upgrades; one 1-Year Admirals Club membership; 25,000 AAdvantage bonus miles; and/or the opportunity to reward a friend with AAdvantage Gold status for one year.
AAdvantage Platinum members who earn 75,000 to 99,999 elite-qualifying miles or points during 2009 will be eligible to select one of the following rewards: four 500-mile upgrades; two Admirals Club one-day passes; 15,000 AAdvantage bonus miles; or the opportunity to reward a friend with AAdvantage Gold status for one year.
AAdvantage Gold members who earn 40,000 to 49,999 elite-qualifying miles or points during 2009 will be eligible to select one of the following rewards: two 500-mile upgrades; one set of luggage tags; one Admirals Club one-day pass; or 7,500 AAdvantage bonus miles.
