Expanded relationship will give World of Hyatt and AAdvantage elite members more reasons to choose American and Hyatt when traveling

FORT WORTH, TEXAS/CHICAGO — American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) and Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) today announced plans to provide frequent travelers more ways to earn miles, points and status when they fly with American or stay at Hyatt — making the travel journey more rewarding every step of the way. The enhanced loyalty collaboration is expected to launch later this year.

Through this relationship, elite members in both the American Airlines AAdvantage and World of Hyatt loyalty programs will be rewarded with more access to earning both points and miles on qualifying American flights and Hyatt hotel stays.

AAdvantage
  • In addition to World of Hyatt points earned through Hyatt hotel stays, AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum and ConciergeKey members will be able to earn one AAdvantage bonus mile for every eligible dollar spent at qualifying Hyatt properties.
  • On top of earning more miles, American’s invitation-only ConciergeKey members will receive World of Hyatt Globalist status as a new way to extend the care provided throughout the entire travel journey.
World of Hyatt
  • In addition to AAdvantage miles earned by flying on American, World of Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist members will be able to earn one World of Hyatt bonus point for every eligible dollar spent on qualifying American flights.
Unique to this collaboration, AAdvantage Platinum, Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum members and Explorist and Globalist World of Hyatt members will also have the opportunity to participate in limited time status challenges. Upon registering, these elite members will be able to immediately enjoy their new loyalty benefits in the reciprocal program tier as they work to maintain that elite tier status. AAdvantage elite members will have access to World of Hyatt elite status benefits, including a dedicated check-in area, late check-out upon request, room upgrades and free premium internet. World of Hyatt elite members will have access to AAdvantage elite status benefits such as priority boarding, free checked bags, free preferred seats and more.

This partnership is now live.

AAdvantage Platinum and higher members have apparently been receiving offers of trial World of Hyatt status this week.

I've linked accounts - so at least I'll get AA miles for my Hyatt stays (along with Hyatt points).

As a Globalist, I'm not sure any challenge for AAdvantage status will be useful to my while my QF WP is still active.
