American Airlines announces elite changes

American has announced changes to its elite program for 2004. It would seem that benefits stay the same. Qualification stays the same on the lowest fares, and gets easier for customers flying on higher fares.

What’s more, the new qualification rules apply retroactively to 2003 as well — anyone who would earn a higher tier status based from their 2003 flying based on the 2004 earning chart will have the higher status in 2004.

Thumbs up!
