AA-DEQM Offer Nov-Dec 2012

Fri Nov 02, 2012 6:39 pm

Just caught this when I was on AA's site looking at flights. Double Miles. Double Thanks.

I didn't think that AA had lost all that much loyalty during its September reliability crisis. Perhaps giving away double elite qualifying miles through the end of the year is an indication that they did?

Wow - either AA is feeling generous or desperate - likely a little of both - well I should make Gold this year hopefully!

'Might have something to do with the new image and livery that is supposed to emerge soon.

Read the apology letter - it has to do with AA's abysmal performance across D0, A14, and completion.

While I don't fly AA, I have several close friends who do, enough so to have felt the pain. So much so that one who spends at least 3x what I do yearly has made a switch...
Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Definitely trying to hold on to valuable customers during the shaky BK times and associated labor strife. With this and Jan/Febs DEQM promo, at least a whole quarter of 2012 will be DEQM. Does anyone know what elite levels the latest promo applies to?

Quoting lax777lr (Reply 4):

After registering for the offer, everyone, elite or not, receives double Elite Qualifying Miles/Elite Qualifying Points Nov 1 through Dec 31, 2012. In addition, elites receive double spendable miles (RDMs) during this period, while non-elites receive double RDMs only during the Thanksgiving flying period of Nov 16 - 26.

This is definitely their way of trying to keep their elite customers. Unfortunately this promotion does me no good as I re-qualified for Executive Platinum in September...I will nonetheless continue to stick with AA, good times or not; I truly believe that this airline will be a force to be reckoned with once it gets out of BK and is on more solid footing.
