AAdvantage® status benefits

Qualify for status with Loyalty Points

Loyalty Points are the new way to reach AAdvantage® status. You’ll qualify for status based on the Loyalty Points posted to your account for the 12-month period starting on March 1 of each year.

You’ll earn Loyalty Points as you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles whenever you fly, use an AAdvantage® credit card for purchases, or earn eligible miles with AAdvantage® partners. One eligible AAdvantage® mile equals one Loyalty Point.
