American Airlines Extends Status Match to United Airlines 1k Elite Members

If you are a United Airlines Mileage Plus frequent flier loyalty program member with 1K elite status, you can earn 55,000 elite-qualifying American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles or points from now through December 31, 2012 and extend your Executive Platinum elite status through February 28, 2014.

Keep in mind that bonus elite qualifying miles earned through special promotions are excluded from this offer.

However, there is a debate between those FlyerTalk members who believe this is a good move that fosters competition with United Airlines and those FlyerTalk members who believe that American Airlines is simply giving status away, thereby insulting those American AAdvantage members who went through the trouble of earning Executive Platinum elite status the “hard way.”
