With Gold status, comfort is complimentary

Premium cabin upgrades

Living the high life

Move up to the premium cabin where more room, dining options and other comforts come standard. With Gold status, you’ll receive complimentary upgrades when traveling within North America on flights 500 miles or less, as early as 24 hours before the flight, when available.

And, the more you fly, the more 500-mile upgrades you earn – you can use them to upgrade on flights greater than 500 miles in length.

Preferred seats

Take a seat anywhere you like

We set aside a number of Preferred seats on each flight for loyal flyers such as yourself. Whether you want the window, aisle or a whole row for your family, Preferred seats are complimentary for Gold members — all you have to do is book them.

Main Cabin Extra

More legroom, complimentary at check-in

Get more space and more comfort while you fly with complimentary access to Main Cabin Extra seats at check-in.

Earn more award miles

When you earn 7 award miles per U.S. dollar spent, every flight can lead to more extraordinary adventures.

One free checked bag

Pack what you want, not just what you need. Traveling light is now a thing of the past.

Priority lanes

We want to make your time with us as smooth as possible. Use Priority lanes at check-in, security and boarding to get through the airport and settled into your seat faster.

Plane in the sky

Fly with the flexibility to get back to what matters most — your life

Same-day standby priority

Get ahead of your schedule

Travel can be unpredictable — plans change, meetings get moved or maybe you just can’t wait to get home. We get it. If you need to catch a different flight, your status gives you a higher standby priority.

Gold service desk

Travel planning is our specialty

Travel with confidence knowing that you have Gold reservations agents ready to assist you with your travel.

Congratulations, again!

Enjoy your time in the sky as an AAdvantage® Gold member.
