American AAdvantage has just released information on changes to its million miler program. As of December 1, 2011, miles earned from flying American, American Eagle, and American Connection will count towards million miler status as well as mileage earned flying any eligible participating AAdvantage partner airline. There’s one more way to earn miles that count. Get the Citi AAdvantage Executive MasterCard. As long as you have the account by December 1, 2011, any miles earned from charges through that post to statements through December 1, 2011.

Importantly, current program to date miles as well as miles posted through November 30, 2011, will count towards million miler status in the new program. In other words, your current million miler status is safe as far as I can tell. Visit for more details from AA.
