American Airline's AAdvantage Policy

American Airline's AAdvantage program changes policy

Frequent Flyer Updates with American Airlines

Frequent fliers know the value of airline miles... and although it might seem like non-news, a minor change in program rules can cause an uproar for business travelers.

Effective December 15, 2007, mileage balances will expire from AAdvantage accounts that have not had miles either earned or redeemed within the previous eighteen (18) month period. This change will not impact you as long as you remain active in the AAdvantage program.

The chart below outlines how the last activity date determines the mileage expiration date:
