The 2016 AAdvantage program – What's ahead

How will award miles be calculated for AA marketed flights starting in the second half of 2016?
Starting in the second half of 2016, travel on any eligible purchased, published fare ticket on an American marketed flight (flights sold under an AA flight number) will earn award miles based on your ticket price (base fare plus any carrier-imposed fees) instead of distance flown, regardless of the date you purchased your ticket. Award miles will not consider government imposed taxes and fees, airline fees such as change fees, ticketing fees or charges for products such as seats or checked baggage.
Some ticket types, such as those sold in conjunction with a vacation package or tickets where the actual fare is not disclosed like consolidator, bulk fare or student tickets will earn award miles based on a percentage of distance flown as determined by the fare class purchased.
How will award miles be calculated for partner airline marketed flights starting in the second half of 2016?
Award miles for travel on most flights marketed by partner airlines will be based on a percentage of the flight distance and the fare class purchased. More details will be announced in 2016.
Will this change impact my existing miles?
No, miles earned previously are not impacted, nor does this impact how miles are earned until this change takes effect in the second half of 2016.
How will my award miles be calculated if my ticket includes both AA marketed and partner marketed flights?
For tickets including both AA marketed and partner marketed flights, award miles will be calculated based on the policy for each flight – AA marketed flights will earn based on your prorated ticket price (base fare plus any carrier-imposed surcharges); partner airline marketed flights will earn based on a percentage of the distance flown as determined by the fare class purchased.
How do I know which airline is marketing my flight?
The marketing carrier is determined by the two letter airline code in the flight number. For example AA8938 is marketed by American Airlines, operated by Cathay Pacific and follows the American Airlines earning rules. However, CX885 is marketed by Cathay Pacific and will earn miles according to the Cathay Pacific chart shown on aa.com.
Why are award miles for travel on partner airline marketed flights calculated differently from AA marketed flights?
When you fly with a partner airline, the fare you paid isn’t always shared with American. Therefore, flights that are marketed by American’s partner airlines earn mileage based on a percentage of the distance flown as determined by the booking code of the ticket purchased.
Are there any types of tickets that won’t earn award miles?
Yes, tickets that currently do not earn award miles, elite-qualifying miles or elite-qualifying segments will not earn award miles in the future. This includes:
Do checked bag fees, seat purchases, 500-mile upgrades or other products/service fees count toward earning award miles?
No, only the base fare paid for your ticket including any carrier-imposed fees will count toward earning award miles. Fees for other products or services will not be awarded miles, including but not limited to the following: checked baggage fees, Admirals Club® memberships, Wi-Fi passes, in-flight food and beverage purchases, in-flight entertainment, unaccompanied minor fees, pet travel fees, 500-mile upgrades, Mileage Multiplier, BuyMiles, GiftMiles, ShareMiles or other mileage purchases, ticket change fees, ticketing fees, same-day confirmed flight change or standby fees and service charges.
How will award miles be calculated for Lifetime AirPass members?
Lifetime AirPass members (Limited and Unlimited) will earn award miles as they do today, based on the distance of the flight.
Will I earn award miles if I purchase a ticket for someone else?
No, just as is the case today, award miles will be awarded to the account of the member who travels, not the member who purchases the ticket.
Will I earn award miles if I purchase a ticket but don’t fly or cancel the ticket but don’t request a refund?
No, award miles are only awarded on eligible tickets after you’ve flown.
If I purchase my ticket in a different currency, how will award miles be determined?
The base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges will be converted to USD (based on the 5-day IATA rate on the date the ticket was issued) and this amount will be awarded as your award miles.
Will the cash co-payment charged in conjunction with an AAdvantage mileage upgrade award count toward my award miles?
No, the cash co-payment associated with an AAdvantage mileage upgrade award will not count toward the award miles earned.
If I pay for my ticket using an American Airlines-issued voucher, will that count toward the award miles earned?
Yes, tickets purchased in full or partially with vouchers will receive full credit for the base fare and carrier-imposed fees associated with the ticket price.
Lifetime and Unlimited Lifetime Airpass members will earn award miles as they do today, which is based on the distance of the flight.
What happens if my flight gets re-routed due to weather or some other issue? How will you calculate the award miles in that situation?
You will receive award miles according to the original fare paid across the actual flight segments flown.
Is there a maximum number of base award miles that can be earned on a ticket?
Yes, a maximum of 75,000 miles will be awarded per ticket (inclusive of any class of service and elite status bonus miles).
Is there a requirement that the ticket be issued by American Airlines in order for award miles to be earned according to the ticket price versus the flight distance?
No, there is no requirement that the ticket be issued by American Airlines to earn miles based on theticket price. Flights marketed by American will earn award miles based on the ticket price (base fare including carrier-imposed fees, excluding any government-imposed taxes and fees); most flights not marketed by American will earn based on a percentage of the flight distance and the booking code of the purchased ticket.
Will the 500-mile minimum for elite members on all flights and for non-elite status members on shuttle flights for award miles continue to apply under this new methodology?
No, the 500-mile minimum for elite members on all eligible flights and for non-elite members on shuttle flights will be removed when the changes to award miles are implemented in second half of 2016.
If I use a promo code to receive a discount when purchasing my ticket, how will my award miles be calculated?
The actual base fare of the ticket, including any carrier imposed surcharges, less the discount associated with the promo code, will be used to calculate the award miles earned.
If a corporate discount was applied to the price of my ticket, how will my award miles be calculated?
The actual base fare of the ticket, including any carrier imposed surcharges, less the discount associated with the corporate discount, will be used to calculate the award miles earned.
If I book and pay for my ticket now for travel in the future, will I earn award miles based on the rules in effect at the time I bought my ticket?
No, award miles will be awarded based on the policy in effect at the time you travel.
Is there a minimum number of award miles I will earn on a flight?
There will be no minimum number of award miles earned on a flight. The current minimum mileage amounts that exist today on some airlines/flights will no longer apply when this change implements in the second half of 2016.
Will I still earn class-of-service bonus miles and elite status bonus miles when these changes are implemented?
For American marketed flights, where we are awarding miles according to the base fare of your ticket.
The class-of-service bonus will no longer be a separate bonus, but is part of how we’ll calculate the base miles earned when multiplying the base fare by 5 (and more for elite status members).
Elite status members will earn bonus miles according to their elite status level:
For tickets that will earn award miles based on the flight distance and the purchased booking code of the ticket, you will earn a separate class of service bonus and an elite status bonus based on the rules for the airline marketing your flight.
