Hilton HHonors is offering some of the members instant American Airlines Platinum status through January 31, 2015.
Then, if you fly 9,000 miles or earn 9,000 EQP’s (Elite Qualifying Points) between October 27 and January 31, 2015, you can keep the status until February 29, 2016 + will receive 20,000 bonus Hilton HHonors points.
You can check your eligibility for this offer here.

You must fly the 9,000 elite qualifying miles or points on any of the following airlines: American Airlines, American Eagle®, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qantas, US Airways, US Airways Express and US Airways Shuttle.
Starwood & Delta has teamed up offering Crossover Rewards (read more here) and United & Marriott have their own RewardsPlus (read more here). Maybe this is an indication that Hilton HHonors and American Airlines are teaming up?
