4 legs on AA for status
I came a across that note on the AA website that one “Must fly at least 4 segments on American during the qualifying year to receive elite status”. Does anyone now if this also includes American code-share flights, like operated by American Eagle, or does it really have to be an American Airlines plane?
American Eagle counts.
“Members must fly at least four segments on American Airlines, American Eagle, the American Connection carrier, US Airways, US Airways Express or US Airways Shuttle to qualify for Executive Platinum, Platinum or Gold status within the qualifying year. Qualifying miles do not include class-of-service bonus miles, other participant miles or any other AAdvantage bonus mileage. Miles purchased through buyAAmiles and giftAAmiles do not qualify for elite status.”
