With the DECREASE in Business travelers and leisure travelers, the EARLY retirement of aircraft due to lighter loads, this comp to the lowest level elite called GOLD (25,000 miles) should have little effect on the upgrades of the serious flyers.

AA must have projections for passenger loads into the near future. It is called competition and bringing in more potential NEW or FORMER passengers.

Of course, other airlines are doing the same, and a number of AA elite have opted to fly other airlines on comped elite status.
