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.
EQMs represent a percentage of the actual miles flown (including applicable minimum mileage guarantees) based on the airline and the booking code purchased. EQSs are segments you earn on eligible purchased tickets for flights on American or partner airlines.
You must fly at least 4 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, elite bonuses, 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 members earn a 120% bonus, Platinum members earn a 60% bonus and Gold members earn a 40% bonus on top of base miles earned traveling with American, participating oneworld® airlines and Alaska Airlines.
AAdvantage® members have a base of 500 EQMs for flights under 500 miles on American, oneworld® airlines and Alaska Airlines. To calculate final EQMs earned, the multiplier for airline and booking code flown is applied to this base.
Fly a million miles with us and enjoy Gold status for the life of the program, bonus miles and more.
