Rules Of The Program
Earning AcAdvantage Miles
To ensure you receive credit for your AAdvantage transactions, please provide your AAdvantage
number when you make your travel reservations or use the services of our participants. Retain all
flight documents until the mileage credit appears on your mileage summary. Members may track
their summary online at www.aa.com or by subscribing to receive the AAdvantage eSummary. For
transactions with other participants, retain your original paid invoice. AAdvantage eSummary subscribers
receive their summary and information every month, regardless of activity level. Your summary includes
flight and participant mileage earned, along with newsletters and special promotions.
• As of January 1, 2000, if your account has no qualifying activity in any 36-month period, all mileage credit
in the account will expire except for those miles earned prior to July 1, 1989, in accounts established prior
to January 1, 1989, whose mileage credit will not expire. Each qualifying activity on or after January 1, 2000,
extends the expiration date of all unexpired mileage credit in your account for 36 months from the date of
the qualifying activity. Qualifying activity is defined as redeeming any AAdvantage award or accruing mileage
credit on any eligible American, American Eagle, AmericanConnection or AAdvantage airline participant, as well
as accruing mileage credit with participating hotels, car rental companies, credit cards, telecommunication
providers and other service providers offering AAdvantage mileage credit.
• Mileage will be credited only to the account of the AAdvantage member who flies, rents a car, stays at a hotel or
earns mileage utilizing other participating companies. No mileage credit will be awarded for canceled flights or
if you are accommodated on another airline.
• Except as otherwise explained below, mileage credit is not transferable and may not be combined among
AAdvantage members, their estates, successors and assigns. Accrued mileage credit and award tickets do not
constitute property of the member. Neither accrued mileage nor award tickets are transferable by the member
(i) upon death, (ii) as part of a domestic relations matter, or (iii) otherwise by operation of law. However,
American Airlines, in its sole discretion, may credit accrued mileage to persons specifically identified in
court-approved divorce decrees and wills upon receipt of documentation satisfactory to American Airlines
and upon payment of any applicable fees. Mileage credit is transferable between AAdvantage accounts when
offered by American Airlines online with the share
shareAAAmiles
AeAmiles program. The member must adhere to the rules and

PROGRAM RULES
• Mileage can be accumulated only one time per flight, regardless of the number of
seats purchased.
• Only individual persons are eligible for AAdvantage program membership. Corporations, other
entities, animals or blocked-seat baggage are not eligible to become AAdvantage members or
to accrue AAdvantage miles. Generally, only the member named on the account will be entitled
to access account information. However, American Airlines does comply with court orders and
subpoenas and cooperates with investigations by state and federal agencies. Under these circumstances
your account information may be shared with others with or without your knowledge or consent.
• AAdvantage flight mileage credit is determined on the basis of nonstop distances between the airports
where your flight originates and terminates. On connecting flights, you’ll receive mileage credit for each
segment of your trip; on single-plane flights, you’ll receive the nonstop origin-destination mileage, except
TAM*. On American Airlines and other AAdvantage airline participants, you’ll receive AAdvantage mileage
credit only for the class of service on which your fare is based when you are ticketed. American Airlines is the
final authority on qualification for mileage credit and reserves the right to deny or revoke mileage credit at any
time if American Airlines determines that mileage credit was improperly given.
• Mileage credit cannot be earned for the same flight, hotel stay† or car rental in more than one of the following
programs: the AAdvantage program or any other loyalty program in which American Airlines participates.
• After your flight departs, you will not be able to change your selection of a frequent traveler program for
earning mileage credit.
*Mileage accrual on TAM is based on actual distance between your city of original departure and your final destination regardless of connections required.
†Exception of Hilton HHonors® “Double Dipping.”
AcAdvantage Award Conditions
• American Airlines may, in its discretion, change the AAdvantage program rules, regulations, travel awards and
special offers at any time with or without notice. This means that the accumulation of mileage credits does
not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to such mileage credits, awards or program benefits.
In accumulating mileage or awards, members may not rely upon the continued availability of any award or
award level, and members may not be able to obtain all offered awards for all destinations or on all flights.
Any award may be withdrawn or subject to increased mileage requirements or new restrictions at any time.
American Airlines may, among other things, (i) withdraw, limit, modify or cancel any award; (ii) change
program benefits, mileage levels, participant affiliations, conditions of participation, rules for earning,
redeeming, retaining or forfeiting mileage credit, or rules for the use of travel awards; or (iii) add travel
embargo dates, limit the number of seats available for award travel (including, but not limited to, allocating
no seats on certain flights) or otherwise restrict the continued availability of travel awards or special offers.
American may make any one or more of these changes at any time even though such changes may affect your
ability to use the mileage credits or awards that you have already accumulated. American Airlines reserves
the right to end the AAdvantage program with six months notice. AAdvantage travel awards, accrued mileage
credits and special offers are subject to government regulations. American Airlines is not responsible for
products and services offered by other participating companies. Any departure fee, immigration fee,
security fees, tax liability surcharge, passenger facility charge or any other fee or surcharge (whether
enacted by a governmental authority or otherwise) is the responsibility of the passenger and/or the
AAdvantage member.

such as AAdvantage award fees.
• Awards for international travel are subject to appropriate governmental approvals.

PROGRAM RULES
• Upgrade tickets may be issued at American Airlines ticketing locations or by your travel agent. For
all other airline travel awards, including those for travel on airline participants, your reservations
must be made with, and your tickets issued by, an American Airlines or American Eagle airport
ticket office or American Airlines Travel Center or via American Airlines Ticket Delivery Service. All
flight awards must be ticketed on American Airlines ticket stock.
• Flight awards on American Airlines, American Eagle or AmericanConnection and our airline participants
may be subject to special limitations on seating availability. Seats for award travel may not be available

as award seats are still available for the award you are using when you make your reservation. However, all
accommodations are subject to availability at the time reservations are made.

companies. If an AAdvantage participant agreement changes or terminates, you may find that AAdvantage
awards for that participant are no longer available. American Airlines is not responsible for any participant
withdrawals, award cancellations, discontinued services, changes in any mileage levels, rules or restrictions
applying to any participant’s awards or mileage accrual policies. AAdvantage award restrictions may be
announced by American Airlines or AAdvantage participants at any time without prior notice.

re-accommodation policies of the carrier on which travel is scheduled, and may also be subject to the Warsaw
Convention or its successor. American’s or American Eagle’s conditions of carriage are available from any
American Airlines airport or Travel Center representative.
• Income tax liability on AAdvantage travel awards, if any, is the responsibility of the member.
General AcAdvantage Conditions
• At no time may AAdvantage mileage credit or award tickets be purchased, sold or bartered. Any such mileage
or tickets are void if transferred for cash or other consideration. Violators (including any passenger who uses
a purchased or bartered award) may be liable for damages and litigation costs, including American’s attorney
fees incurred in enforcing this rule.
• Use of award tickets that have been acquired by purchase or for any other consideration may result in the
tickets being confiscated or the passenger being denied boarding. If a trip has been started, any continued
travel will be at the passenger’s expense on a full-fare basis. The passenger and member may also be liable to
American Airlines for the cost of a full-fare ticket for any segments flown on a sold or bartered ticket.
• Fraud, misrepresentation, abuse or violation of applicable rules (including, but not limited to, American
or American Eagle conditions of carriage, tariffs and AAdvantage program rules) is subject to appropriate
administrative and/or legal action by appropriate governmental authorities and American Airlines. Such action
may include, without limitation, the forfeiture of all award tickets and any accrued mileage in a member’s
account, as well as cancellation of the account and the member’s future participation in the AAdvantage
program. In addition, American Airlines reserves the right to take appropriate legal action to recover damages,
continued on page 30
including its attorney fees incurred in prosecuting any lawsuit.

notice to the member to ensure compliance with AAdvantage program rules and applicable
