As part of the process of combining our loyalty programs, we have harmonized our terms and conditions and added more details. Below are the updated AAdvantage program terms and conditions which take effect immediately.


AAdvantage program reservation of rights

These reservations of rights apply to all aspects of the AAdvantage program, including without limitation, all elite status programs such as AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Executive Platinum, ConciergeKey and the AAdvantage Million Miler program. American Airlines may, in its discretion, change the AAdvantage program rules, regulations, travel awards and special offers at any time with or without notice. This means that the accumulation of mileage credit does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to such mileage credits, awards or program benefits. In accumulating mileage or awards, members may not rely upon the continued availability of any award or award level, and members may not be able to obtain all offered awards for all destinations or on all flights. Any award may be withdrawn or subject to increased mileage requirements or new restrictions at any time. American Airlines may, among other things, (i) withdraw, limit, modify, or cancel any award; (ii) change program benefits, mileage levels, participant affiliations, conditions of participation, rules for earning, redeeming, retaining or forfeiting mileage credit, or rules for the use of travel awards; (iii) rename or redefine program elements or benefits; (iv) add travel embargo dates, limit the number of seats available for award travel (including, but not limited to, allocating no seats on certain flights) or otherwise restrict the continued availability of travel awards or special offers; or (v) end any of its elite status programs. American Airlines may make any one or more of these changes at any time even though such changes may affect your ability to use the mileage credit or awards that you have already accumulated. Program services and benefits available through the oneworld® alliance or other participating partners in connection with the AAdvantage program are subject to change without notice. American Airlines reserves the right to end the AAdvantage program with six months' notice. AAdvantage travel awards, accrued mileage credits and special offers are subject to government regulations.
