American Airlines has launched new promotion for select AAdvantage program members offering them an instant Platinum Pro status with unlimited upgrades through May 25 and fast track offer to keep it until January 2019. Last week, I wrote about similar offer for Platinum status (read more here)
American has had similar offers throughout the years targeting members that have had less travel than previously or those that AA think can give them greater share of their flying dollars.
You can access this offer on AA’s website here.
Note that the flights to complete the fast track offer don’t need to flown exclusively on American. Flights flown on American Airlines, American Eagle, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and Japan Airlines as well as American Airlines codeshares qualify.
Here are some Platinum Pro benefits:
Complimentary upgrades on flights within North America (confirmed as early as 72 hours before departure)
Priority through the airport at check-in, security and boarding
9 award miles/U.S. dollar (80% bonus)
Complimentary access to Main Cabin Extra and Preferred seats
2 free checked bags
oneworld® SapphireSM status on partner airlines
Here’s the email that AA sent out:
American Airlines has been quite aggressive throughout the years sending out offers like this once or twice a year.
It is good way for those that received one to try out American (if they aren’t flying on them already) and getting unlimited upgrades, when available, within North America helps with domestic flights.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
