American Airlines Targeted AAdvantage Gold, Platinum & Platinum Pro Status Challenge Through May 15, 2019


American Airlines has launched targeted AAdvantage Status Challenges for select program members. You check your eligibility by logging to your account and checking if it shows under Promotions.

American Airlines has advanced Gold, Platinum or Platinum Premier up front and members then have until May 15, 2019 to complete the challenge to keep the status until 2020.

You can access American Airlines here.

Eligible members have been given upgrade instruments that can be used for eligible flights.

Here are the challenges offered:

American Airlines Elite Qualification

Note that there can be higher or lower personalized offers. Targeted AAdvantage members have four months to meet these targets to keep the status through early 2020.


American Airlines has done similar offers yearly in the past and often more than once. Members get the status upfront and then need to reach the miles and dollar requirements by the set deadline.

It is good way for American Airlines to get potential fliers to “test” their elite program. If you were targeted for this offer, remember that you need to fulfill the full status requirements by the end of this year to keep it through 2021.
