American Airlines AAL has launched a revamped AAdvantage loyalty program by virtue of which members can use a single metric — loyalty points — to earn status. Under the system, one qualifying mile earned equals one loyalty point.

AAdvantage members can earn miles and loyalty points by flying, dining, shopping and using an AAdvantage credit card. The program enhances the travel experience of customers, by offering free checked bags, priority check-in, priority security and priority boarding when flying on either American Airlines or its oneworld Alliance partners.

For 2022, members will require 30,000 loyalty points to earn a Gold status, 75,000 loyalty points for Platinum, 125,000 for Platinum Pro and 200,000 for Executive Platinum. A status, once achieved, will be valid through Mar 31 of the next year.
