American Airlines and Hyatt have announced a new partnership where frequent travelers can earn airline miles and hotel points on both flights and stays. American Airlines AAdvantage elite fliers will be able to earn AAdvantage miles for stays at Hyatt hotels. Likewise, World of Hyatt elites will earn World of Hyatt points in addition to airline miles when flying American. American Airlines AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum and ConciergeKey elites will earn one AAdvantage bonus mile per dollar spent at qualifying Hyatt properties. Members of American’s invitation-only ConciergeKey status program will also receive Hyatt’s top-tier Globalist status. World of Hyatt program Discoverist, Explorist, and Globalist elites will receive one World of Hyatt bonus point for every dollar spent on qualifying American flights. Bridget Blaise-Shamai, president of AAdvantage, said the arrangement allows elite customers across brands the opportunity of an accelerated path to elite status.
