Earn Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) or Elite Qualifying Segments (EQSs) on eligible-fare tickets to qualify for Executive Platinum, Platinum or Gold status when you fly:
Plus, Full-fare Economy, Business Class and First Class tickets on American-marketed flights will earn EQMs at a higher rate – getting you to elite status faster.
*Must fly at least 4 segments on American during the qualifying year to receive elite status.
EQMs and EQSs 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 or American Eagle to qualify for Executive Platinum, Platinum or Gold status within the qualifying year.
EQMs do not include class-of-service bonus miles, other participant miles, any other AAdvantage bonus mileage, or miles obtained from BuyMiles or GiftMiles.
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, when the new membership year begins, every elite member’s year starts over.
As an AAdvantage Executive Platinum member, you will receive 4 complimentary one-way systemwide upgrades upon qualification. You’ll also have the ability to earn up to 4 more for a total of 8 per year. 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 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 and participating oneworld airlines.
Elite members will earn at least 500 miles for flights under 500 miles on American and participating AAdvantage and oneworld airlines.
We’ve extended our 2015 AAdvantage bonus miles promotion. Earn more award miles when you fly on a First or Business class ticket on American and select other airlines until the changes to earning award miles go into effect in the second half of 2016.
Fly a million miles with us and enjoy Gold status for the life of the program, bonus miles and more.
