World of Hyatt Extends Status Challenge to AAdvantage Elites

American Airlines AAdvantage elites who have their account linked to World of Hyatt can get 90 days of free status with the hotel loyalty program and the chance to keep it into 2025.
Calling all American Airlines’ AAdvantage elites: World of Hyatt wants to give you elite status for at least three months.


The hotelier announced a new promotion offering 90 days of Explorist status for all AAdvantage elite members, with the opportunity to move up to Globalist through February 2025.


Potential World of Hyatt Elite Level Based on AAdvantage Status

Under the promotion, which started on September 12, 2023, flyers who have their American Airlines AAdvantage account linked with World of Hyatt can register for the status challenge. Registration for the challenge is open through November 30, 2023.


Once a flyer has opted in, they will receive World of Hyatt Explorist status for 90 days, starting from the registration date. During that time, travelers must have 10 tier-qualifying nights to keep Explorist status through February 2025. Normally, guests must stay 30 tier-qualifying nights, earn 50,000 base points, or host 10 meetings to earn Explorist status.


Flyers who are in the AAdvantage Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum tiers get an additional status challenge. If those flyers earn 20 tier-qualifying nights during the 90-day challenge period, they can earn the top-tier Globalist status. Earning Globalist in a qualifying year normally takes 60 tier-qualifying nights, 100,000 base points, or 20 meetings.


Travelers can earn tier-qualifying nights by booking eligible rates or award nights through the World of Hyatt website. Travelers can earn at any participating Hyatt hotel, Small Luxury Hotels of the World locations, and with Lindblad Expeditions. Only tier qualifying nights earned during the 90-day challenge period will count towards earning Explorist or Globalist status through February 2025; nights earned before registration or after the 90-day challenge period won’t count.


Travelers can link their accounts and register for the promotion by signing up on the World of Hyatt website.
