American AAdvantage Lifetime Million Miler Status: Are the Rules Changing?
Members of the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program are predicting, reporting and speculating that changes are looming with the requirements to achieving the much-vaunted lifetime Million Miler elite status.
Although The Gate does not normally report on speculation and rumors, the question remains: will these predictions become reality?
Currently, any American Airlines AAdvantage mile earned — whether by flying, promotional offers or transferred from another frequent traveler loyalty program — count towards Million Miler elite status. This used to be a benefit in other frequent flier loyalty programs years ago, until they dropped this benefit, one by one, until the AAdvantage program became the only remaining frequent flier loyalty program to keep this benefit.
