Qualifying for Elite status on an airline is the best way to get special perks and benefits.  Benefits include domestic First Class upgrades, system wide upgrades good for International Flights, access to a special reservations number, preferred seating, mileage bonuses, priority check-in, access to priority security lines, early boarding, free checked luggage, and waived fees in certain circumstances.

“I thought to myself, after the latest technological gizmo and peace on earth, what would our AAdvantage members want the most during this holiday season,” said Maya Leibman, American’s outgoing President of AAdvantage Loyalty Program and incoming Chief Information Officer.

“While I may be new to the role of president, I am not new to being an AAdvantage member,” said Suzanne Rubin, American’s incoming president of AAdvantage Loyalty Program. “As a member for 25 years and having had the pleasure of working directly with Maya for the past six months, I have learned what our members want from the AAdvantage program, hence today’s double elite qualifying promotion.  As Maya passes the baton to me, I look forward to demonstrating my shared passion for the program and can assure customers that we will continue to seek member feedback in order to enhance the program and offer valued promotions.”

It’ll be interesting to see if other carriers follow with similar promotions to stay competitive.  With American Airlines being in a Chapter 11 re-organization, this is a great promo to retain their most valuable customers, the high mileage frequent flyers.
