Upgrades With Elite Status

Thu Jul 29, 2004 7:38 am

I just got Gold on AA and my understanding was that you would then earn upgrades based on mileage. Yet after my first rev trip on AA being Gold I got the miles posted but no upgrades earned.

I havent been able to find much info on AA's website about it so if someone wouldnt mind telling me I would appreciate it.

thanks

Perhaps the section marked "Upgrades" wasn't clear enough.

American Airlines automatically credits your upgrade account with four 500-mile electronic upgrades for every 10,000 qualifying base miles you earn

Go to http://www.flyertalk.com and go to the AA portion of the site. Read the duscussion forum and you'll find your answer there.
