Update to earning on flights

Starting May 1, 2024, we’re updating the way you earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points on flights depending on where you book. Learn which flights earn miles and Loyalty Points and which do not.

Our partnership with Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines is the national carrier of Malaysia and connects you to more than 50 destinations across Asia, Europe, the Pacific and the Middle East. When you fly on Malaysia Airlines, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on Malaysia Airlines marketed and operated flights as well as Malaysia Airlines codeshare flights operated by oneworld® carriers and affiliates:

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on Malaysia Airlines, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.
