American AAdvantage and World of Hyatt have a partnership that offers reciprocal perks. While this offers some consistent benefits, we’ve just seen a promotion rolled out that offers an American AAdvantage status fast track for World of Hyatt elite members.

How the American & Hyatt partnership works

In 2019 American AAdvantage and World of Hyatt launched a partnership, offering reciprocal benefits for members of both loyalty programs. The concept of airlines and hotels teaming up makes sense, since those who fly a lot are also likely to stay at hotels a lot, and vice versa.

With this partnership, registered members can receive the following perks:

As you can see, typically the only “guaranteed” status is that Concierge Key members receive Globalist status, while there’s no consistent opportunities for Hyatt elite members to receive American status.

American & Hyatt have an awesome partnership

Hyatt status fast track for American elites

With a new promotion, AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, and Executive Platinum members, can register for a World of Hyatt fast track, which can earn them World of Hyatt Explorist or Globalist status, depending on their qualifying activity.

Here are the basic terms:

  • You must register by November 30, 2022
  • Qualifying World of Hyatt activity has to be completed within 90 days of registration (so you’ll want to time registration, since the “clock” starts when you register)
  • Members will receive trial Explorist status, and then can maintain Explorist or Globalist status through February 2024 based on qualifying activity
  • Only eligible rates qualify, including award nights

You need to complete the following number of nights within 90 days to maintain status through February 2024:

  • To maintain World of Hyatt Explorist status, earn 10 qualifying nights
  • To earn World of Hyatt Globalist status, earn 20 qualifying nights (only Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum, and Concierge Key members are eligible for the Globalist status challenge)

Essentially this fast track requires you to earn one-third of the typical elite nights in one-quarter of the year. A couple of further things to note:

Bottom line

American AAdvantage and World of Hyatt have an awesome partnership, and as part of that, they’ve launched a new promotion. At the moment, American AAdvantage elite members can receive World of Hyatt Explorist status for a period of 90 days, and then can earn Explorist or Globalist status (for select members) through February 2024 based on their stay activity during that period.

This could be well worth it for any American AAdvantage loyalists who want to earn World of Hyatt status.

Anyone taking advantage of this Hyatt status fast track opportunity?

    This is BS for people who actually spend real $$ and fly past Globalist status into the 70,80,90 and 100 night range per year, just to have some AA'er walk into Globalist for 20 nights? Really?

    What is AA giving out?

    With that said, Hyatt is still consistently better than Marriott Platinum, which I will let go off this year. Its worthless!

  2. John Guest

    Did Hyatt just remove the Globalist option? I clicked the link and was only offered Explorist for staying 10 nights -- no Globalist for staying 20.

    1. Brian Guest

      Try it again- it says Explorist in first message box BUT scroll down a little further below the REGISTER tab and the second message box explains you can complete the challenge for either Explorist or Globalist

    Would much rather AA incentivize hyatt globalist to fly AA, even with basic gold status would help me pick AA over LUV.

  4. Regis Guest

    One way benefits. Not good Hyatt. What's in it for us Globalists? Just a devaluation of the program.

  5. joe Guest

    Hate to be that person but.... really hope they don't make this too easy, increase globalist count so much, and water down the benefits. Hyatt Globalist is genuinely a fantastic status to have. I'm happy to divert my spend to them because of it. If it becomes Bonvoy.... :(

  6. LMT Guest

    Can current Globalist that are also AA exec platinum renew their globalist status using this challenge?

  7. Avi Guest

    Is AA offering any status challenge to Hyatt Globalists?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Avi -- Not that I've seen so far. Maybe it's still coming? Or maybe American doesn't want more elites right now, between status extensions and the Loyalty Points system?
