Secure your elite status for 2016

Secure your elite status for 2016

The 2016 AAdvantage® elite status qualification year ends on December 31, 2015. Not on track to reach your goal? You still have two ways to step up your status:

Boost your status

You can boost to the next level if you're within 15,000 elite-qualifying miles or points of your desired status based on your 2015 activity. You can also boost to the next level if your 2015 activity is within 18 elite-qualifying segments of AAdvantage Gold or AAdvantage Platinum status or within 20 elite-qualifying segments of AAdvantage Executive Platinum status. Plus, you’ll start enjoying your benefits in five business days.

Renew your status

If you weren’t able to retain your elite status, you can renew your status to begin on March 1, 2016.

If you pay to boost or renew and qualify on your own later, we don’t offer refunds.
