Dear Frugal Travel Guy,
Effective January 1, 2009, we are discontinuing the minimum mileage guarantee for non-elite status members for flights on American Airlines, American Eagle®, AmericanConnection®, oneworld® member airlines, AAdvantage® participating airlines as well as rail service and codeshare service booked under an AA flight number.
In recognition of your loyalty to American Airlines, AAdvantage elite status members will be exempt from this policy change. As an elite status member, you will continue to earn 500 minimum miles for flights under 500 flight miles on applicable routes*. The new policy will apply to non-elite status members traveling on or after January 1, 2009, regardless of when the ticket was booked or purchased. Flights flown on or before December 31, 2008 will continue to accrue AAdvantage miles under the current policy.
For more information, visit AA.com/AAdvantage.
Thank you for your business. We look forward to seeing you onboard soon.
Sincerely, Rob Friedman
AAdvantage Marketing Programs
