Earn elite-qualifying miles, points or segments on eligible-fare tickets to qualify for Executive Platinum, Platinum or Gold status when you fly:
*Must fly at least four segments on American or US Airways during the qualifying year to receive elite status.
Qualifying miles or segments are the actual miles (including applicable minimum mileage guarantees) or segments you earn on eligible purchased tickets for flights on American or partner airlines.
You must fly at least four segments on American Airlines, American Eagle, US Airways, US Airways Express or US Airways Shuttle to qualify for Executive Platinum, Platinum or Gold status within the qualifying year.
Qualifying miles do not include class-of-service bonus miles, other participant miles, any other AAdvantage bonus mileage, or miles obtained from buyAAmiles or giftAAmiles.
The number of elite status points you earn is based on a combination of earned miles and the class of service purchased. For American Airlines marketed codeshare flights, your ticket must reflect an American Airlines coded flight number.

There are two timelines associated with elite status membership – the qualification period and the membership period.
Since you begin receiving elite benefits immediately upon qualification, the beginning of your membership year is the day you qualify for your elite level. Then, on March 1, every elite member’s year starts over.
Upgrades will still be different on American and US Airways flights until we have a single reservation system later this year.
As an AAdvantage Executive Platinum member, you will receive eight complimentary one-way systemwide upgrades upon qualification. If upgrade seating is available, you or any passenger you designate may enjoy confirmed upgrades to the next class of service at the time of booking on most Business and Economy Class fares when flying on American or US Airways marketed and operated flights.
Executive Platinum and Platinum members will earn a 100% bonus and Gold members will earn a 25% bonus based on the base miles or minimum miles guaranteed, when traveling with American, US Airways and participating oneworld airlines.
Elite members will earn at least 500 miles for flights under 500 miles on American, US Airways and participating AAdvantage and oneworld airlines.
Fly a million miles with us and enjoy Gold status for the life of the program, bonus miles and more.
