American AAdvantage macht Anpassungen für Status in 2021 …
American AAdvantage hat den Status bereits um ein Jahr verlängert. In 2021 gelten nun geringere Statusanforderungen (20% weniger). Flüge von Oktober bis Dezember 2020 zählen als Rollover für 2021.
“Adjusting elite qualification requirements
You’ll be able to qualify for elite status in 2021 with adjusted Elite Qualifying Dollar (EQD), Elite Qualifying Mile (EQM) and Elite Qualifying Segment (EQS) requirements.
Keep in mind, earlier this year, we extended all elite status expiring on January 31, 2021, until January 31, 2022.
Giving you a head start on elite qualification for 2021
All base EQMs, EQSs, and EQDs earned based on flights taken from October 1 – December 31, 2020, will also count toward your 2021 requirements. We’ll automatically roll them over after January 1, 2021. Keep in mind, bonus elite qualifying credits, such as those earned from an AAdvantage® credit card, will not roll over.
Adjusting EQM thresholds for Executive Platinum rewards
Previously, members who qualified for Executive Platinum status received a choice of 1 reward upon reaching 150,000, 200,000 and 250,000 EQMs.
For 2021, we’ll adjust the levels required to earn these rewards to 120,000, 160,000 and 200,000 EQMs.
Introducing the flexibility to choose your rewards
Starting in early 2021, when you qualify for Platinum Pro or Executive Platinum status, you’ll have the flexibility to choose the rewards that matter most to you.
For our Platinum Pro members, you’ll be able to enhance your current benefits by choosing from a list of rewards such as a systemwide upgrade, Admirals Club® day passes, AAdvantage® bonus miles and more.
For our Executive Platinum members, systemwide upgrades will now become one of many reward options – you can choose to maintain up to the 4 systemwide upgrades you receive today, or you’ll have the flexibility to select from a list of additional rewards. All of your other existing Executive Platinum benefits will remain the same.”
