Um Atalho Para O Status Elite do Aadvantage da American: Confirmado

12 de May de 2007 | Por | 2 Comentários More
Em um post recente, falamos sobre o 90-day challenger da American Airlines e colocamos em dúvida sua validade para os Brasileiros.

O leitor João Henrrique já tinha afirmado que fez uso desse programa em 2005.

Desta vez em contato por e-mail com o Aadvantage, que por sinal responde prontamente os emails enviados (ponto para a American), perguntei sobre a possibilidade de obter um status elite no Aadvantage como cortesia, já que tinha um no Smiles (tenho uma pendência também lá!).

Recebi como resposta que poderia voar apenas 5.000 milhas ou 10.000 milhas na American para atingir o status Gold e Platinum, respectivamente, durante um período de 90 dias. Se desejasse, era só entrar em contato por e-mail com o Aadavantage.

Portanto, se é de seu interesse e se você for começar a usar vôos da American e Oneworld, é uma super promoção não publicada regularmente. Entre em contato com a central do Aadvantage e cheque se eal ainda está vigente. Lembre-se que os status elite do Aadvantage dão uma série de benefícios, sendo as milhas bônus um dos mais importantes.

    È verdade! Vejam o email que recebi da AA:

    Dear Mr. Cavalcante,

    We appreciate your recent email to AAdvantage Customer Service.

    We offer elite challenges as a “fast track” to the membership you
    normally would earn with elite-qualifying flights throughout the
    calendar year. If you feel you could benefit from an elite challenge,
    please be sure to contact us again so we can set up your account for the
    right one.

    Here’s How Elite Challenges Work:

    * Challenges are based on points, not miles, and the goals 10,000 points
    in a designated three-month period to earn AAdvantage Platinum status.
    The challenge must be programmed in advance, so you will have to contact
    us again, either by replying to this message or calling 800-421-0600.
    Challenges begin on either the 1st or 16th day of a month and last for 3
    months. Be sure to let us know about a month before you wish to begin a
    challenge.

    * Once you’ve been registered for a challenge, all you have to do is fly
    on American Airlines and earn the designated number of points. Flights
    on American Eagle and AmericanConnection as well as AA codeshare flights
    operated by other carriers also count toward your challenge.

    * I can’t emphasize enough that challenges are based on points, not
    miles. You can accumulate points at a higher rate when you select
    premium fares. But you can also purchase discounted fares to meet your
    challenge — you’ll just have to fly more. As a rule of thumb, you can
    earn 10,000 points (for an AAdvantage Platinum challenge) by flying
    around 7,000 elite-qualifying miles on unrestricted Economy Class fares.
    If you use Discount Fares, flying 10,000 qualifying miles will earn you
    10,000 points. And if you choose Deep Discount Fares, it will be
    necessary to fly 20,000 miles in three months in order to earn your
    10,000 points. (All of these values are cut in half for an AAdvantage
    Gold challenge.)

    * When we program your challenge, be sure to ask us to send you a
    follow-up email with more detailed information about booking codes —
    and how to determine how many points you’ll earn for the specific fare
    you’re purchasing. We don’t want to overload you with too much
    information right now!

    * In general, if your challenge begins in the first half of the year, we
    expect you to use the second half to reach the established criteria for
    your elite level in order to requalify. In other words, say your
    challenge begins June 1, 2007. When you fulfill your goal of 10,000
    points, you will receive new credentials that are valid through February
    28, 2008. In order to continue your status beyond that date, it will be
    necessary for you to meet the full qualification requirements of your
    level during calendar year 2007. That means earning 25,000
    elite-qualifying miles/points or flying 30 qualifying segments from
    January 1, 2007 – December 31, 2007 for AAdvantage Gold membership, or
    earning double these amounts for AAdvantage Platinum membership.

    * If your challenge begins in the second half of the year, even we
    understand it might be difficult to meet the full qualification criteria
    by year-end, so the new credentials you will receive for meeting the
    goal will actually carry you through to the end of the next membership
    year. For example, if your challenge begins October 16, 2007 then the
    status you will earn when you meet the goal will be valid through
    February 28, 2009.

    * While a challenge is a shortcut, it’s not intended as a permanent
    route! We don’t enable members to earn their elite status by fulfilling
    a challenge two years in a row. So if you’re on the challenge fast track
    one year, please be prepared to requalify on your own the next year.

    Remember, nothing is automatic, so if you want to take a shot at earning
    AAdvantage Platinum membership by way of a challenge, don’t forget to
    contact us again — about a month or so before you plan to start it. In
    the meantime, think about when such an opportunity might be “doable” for
    you, then just let us know!

    Thank you for contacting us regarding this matter. If you have any other
    AAdvantage issues or questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.

    Regards,

    Sandra H.
