American Airlines Extends AAdvantage Elite Status

To help travelers impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, American Airlines is recognizing the loyalty of AAdvantage members by extending their elite status into 2022.

American announced it would continue supporting its most loyal customers by extending elite status for AAdvantage members until Jan. 31, 2022, and reducing elite status qualifications for 2020.

The airline also revealed it would be introducing up to $400 special credits for future travel on American Airlines Vacations packages for elite members and awarding reinstatement fees waived for travel through September 2020.

In addition, every dollar spent on an eligible AAdvantage co-branded credit card through the end of 2020 will count for one mile toward Million Miler status.

“We are grateful to our AAdvantage members and want to show them that loyalty is a two-way street,” AAdvantage program Vice President Bridget Blaise-Shamai said in a statement. “When people are ready to fly again, we will be there to help them reconnect with loved ones, friends and colleagues.”

American also announced it would extend Admirals Club memberships and One-Day Passes purchased from the airline for six months.

Earlier this week, the Dallas Morning News reported more than 13,000 pilots and flight attendants for American have accepted either early retirement or a voluntary leave this month or next.
