American just sent out the official email with the full details of their double miles and EQM Q4 promo/apology, confirming that.. as an AAdvantage elite status member, starting November 1, 2012, you can earn double elite qualifying miles and points, and double miles for travel on American through the end of the year. Non-elite members will also earn double miles and EQM, though only November 16, 2012 through November 26th, 2012.
All previous reservations will qualify, though you must register here, using code AATHX!
As New Girl in the Air points out – AAdvantage Gold status, which normally takes 25,000 miles of flying per year, could be achieved through only 12,500 miles of flying during the promotional period. That’s just one trip from Chicago to Tokyo, roughly 2 trips from the east coast to Europe, or 3 trans-continental flights. Similarly, Platinum status would “only” take 25,000 miles of flying in this 2-month period and Executive Platinum would require 50,000 miles rather than 100,000 miles. Of course, that’s assuming you’re starting from zero as of November 1. Lucky points out that this means 300% miles on all travel for Platinum or Executive Platinum members!
