World Of Hyatt Elite Status Fast Track Offers For American Airlines Platinums & Higher


American Airlines and Hyatt launched a partnership yesterday (read more here) that allows each others elites to earn bonus miles and points plus accelerated path to status.

American Airlines AAdvantage - World of Hyatt

We already wrote about the American Airlines offers for Hyatt’s elites (read more here). Here’s what World of Hyatt is offering for American Airlines Platinum and higher status members.

You can access this offer on AA’s website here.

American Airlines Concierge Key members will get status match to Globalist status through 2021. You need to register for these offers by October 1, 2019.

Here’s the info about American Airlines Platinum & Platinum Pro status match:

  • Register by October 1, 2019 to receive Explorist status for 90 days.
  • Stay ten qualifying nights at any Hyatt hotel or resort within 90 days of registration to maintain Explorist status through February 28, 2021 and earn 4 Club Lounge Access Awards.

Explorist benefits include:

  • 2:00 PM late checkout upon request
  • Upgrade to best room available, excluding suites
  • Guaranteed room availability 72 hours in advance of arrival
  • Week of Wellbeing at Exhale Spa

There is separate fast track offer for Executive Platinum members that can earn Globalist status after 20 nights during the 90 day period.


I find it funny that I am targeted for Explorist status while holding Globalist through February 2021 based on number of Hyatt nights so far in 2019.

The club lounge access awards are handy and each valid for up to seven night stay. Easy to qualify for Globalist while enjoying most of the benefits (sans 4PM guaranteed check out and space available suite upgrades).

Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:

To qualify for this offer, you must be an AAdvantage® Platinum or Platinum Pro member who has already successfully linked your AAdvantage® account to your World of Hyatt® account (“Eligible Member”). To participate in this offer, Eligible Members must register by October 1, 2019, through the dedicated offer registration page provided by Hyatt or American Airlines.

Upon registration, the Eligible Member will receive a trial upgrade to Explorist status for 90 days (“Explorist Trial Period”). The trial will provide the member with the benefits of Explorist status, as set forth in the World of Hyatt program terms, provided that the member isn’t already a higher tier in the World of Hyatt program. To maintain Explorist status through February 2021, the member must complete at least ten (10) Tier-Qualifying Nights (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms) during his or her Explorist Trial Period. If the member completes the 10 Tier-Qualifying Nights, (s)he will also receive four (4) Club Lounge Access Awards (which are subject to the World of Hyatt program terms).

Only Tier-Qualifying Nights completed by the member during the Explorist Trial Period will count toward this offer. Stays completed by the member prior to the start of his/her Explorist Trial Period will not count towards this offer (even if any night stayed otherwise qualifies as a Tier-Qualifying Night). Further, in order for Tier-Qualifying Nights completed during the member’s Explorist Trial Period to count toward this offer, the member must check out of his or her reservation during his or her Explorist Trial Period. If member checks into a reservation during his or her Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period, but does not check out until after the Explorist Trial Period or Qualification Period has ended, no nights stayed as part of that reservation will count toward this offer. Explorist Trial Period begins at registration and may not be extended. World of Hyatt Credit Card nights do not qualify as Tier-Qualifying Nights.

If the member earns Explorist status through February 28, 2021 by completing the criteria above, his/her new status will be applied within 7 business days of checkout of the stay during which (s)he completes the applicable requirement.
