Starting January 24, 2019, you can redeem AAdvantage® miles for travel in Premium Economy, available on international flights to/from Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and South America as well as on select domestic flights to/from Hawaii and Alaska. Premium Economy amenities include:
Premium Economy awards are available for as few as 25,000 AAdvantage® miles each way plus any applicable taxes and carrier-imposed fees.
You can book Premium Economy awards via all of our channels including a new tool when booking on your desktop.
Upgrades into Premium Economy using your AAdvantage® miles or other AAdvantage® products aren’t available at this time, and Premium Economy awards aren’t available for travel on our partner airlines.
Effective for award travel booked on or after January 16, 2019, the following changes apply:
We’re introducing a few updates effective January 1, 2019, for AAdvantage® members, including new qualification requirements for AAdvantage® Executive Platinum status and extra rewards Executive Platinum members can choose.
Additionally, we’re changing how you earn Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) on American and select oneworld® airlines, and what you earn when flying on special fares (such as bulk or consolidator fares) and exception tickets (cases when ticket/fare details are unavailable).
The Elite Qualifying Dollar (EQD) requirement for AAdvantage® Executive Platinum status is increasing from $12,000 EQDs to $15,000 EQDs for the 2020 membership year.
Upon qualification for Executive Platinum status, members will continue to receive 4 systemwide upgrades. Additionally, members who reach 150,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs), 200,000 EQMs and 250,000 EQMs can choose a reward.
You can track your progress toward reaching these reward levels in your account. Once you reach these goals, your reward choices will be available in your wallet.
The EQMs you earn on select oneworld® airlines are increasing to be aligned with what you earn when flying on an American-marketed flight.
The EQMs earned on American-marketed flights on fares booked in “Y” are decreasing from 1.5 EQMs to 1.0 EQMs per mile flown to be more in line with the ticket value.
We’re adjusting the award miles, class of service bonus, EQDs and EQMs to match the value of the ticket for select booking codes for travel on American-marketed flights on these ticket types:
In some cases what you earn on these tickets is increasing and in other cases it’s decreasing.
We’ve made it even easier to redeem your miles for award travel on American and various partner airlines when booking through our app.
Dreaming of a trip? You can now redeem your AAdvantage® miles on aa.com for travel on even more partner airlines:
We’ve updated the look of your AAdvantage® account, added new features and moved a few things around.
All your information is now organized under 3 tabs:
View your progress toward elite status, upcoming trips and program news.
Check out current promotions available to you and track your progress toward completion.
Find all your account balances in one place, like award miles (including Million MilerSM activity) and 500-mile and systemwide upgrades.
If you and a companion are waitlisted for the same type of upgrade, you can sponsor them to receive your priority level. You’ll stay prioritized together, even at the airport.
Companions don’t have to be AAdvantage® members; the upgrade can be deducted from any account.
To sponsor a companion for a new or existing trip, contact Reservations.
Today, you and another elite status member can be prioritized together on the 500-mile upgrade waitlist. If the upgrade isn’t cleared before you get to the airport, you are prioritized based on individual status.
Now, you can ask an agent to reconnect you on the list at the airport. If available, the 500-mile upgrades will be deducted from the sponsor’s account.
Upgrade requests will be prioritized by elite status level, then:
If the upgrade type and 12-month Rolling EQD value are the same we’ll look at the booking code then date/time of the request to determine prioritization.
Before you get to the airport, requests for systemwide and mileage award upgrades are processed independently from 500-mile upgrade requests.
At the airport, upgrades requested will be prioritized in this order:
Your 12-month Rolling EQD value is updated daily and is different from your Year-to-Date (YTD) EQDs, which is used to track your progress toward elite status.
