American Airlines and World of Hyatt have announced a new partnership offering crossover benefits to elite members of both programs. While no date has been officially set, it is estimated that the program will formally launch in late 2019.
So far the details are a bit thin, but here is what we know so far:
- World of Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist, and Globalist members are set to earn one bonus World of Hyatt point per dollar spent on qualifying American Airlines flights.
- AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum, and Concierge Key members, are set to earn one bonus AAdvantage mile per dollar spent at qualifying Hyatt properties.
- AAdvantage Platinum, Platinum Pro, and Executive Platinum members, as well as World of Hyatt Explorist and Globalist members, will get the chance to take part in special status-match challenges.
- AA Concierge Key members will receive Hyatt Globalist status, although some perks will be restricted compared with those who have achieved status via the normal route
It is always great news when you can leverage one elite status to gain perks with another program. Hopefully, more details will be announced soon, and the level of partnership will be even greater than the reciprocal benefits confirmed thus far. One thing to remember is that there are other airline hotel partnerships, like the one between United and Marriott, so it is always worth checking to see your elite status with one program confers benefits with another.
