Agreed - most are "mogulii" / biz travel arrangers etc. Consolidating and justifying it under one rubric makes sense. In any case, it won't be yours truly; I'll just continue being a flying frontline grunt. But if it helps AA keep the money and high tier travelers flowing in, good on 'em.

What they have done is gone through and cleaned out all the different VIP lists and merged them all in to one .

The majority of the VIPs are not film stars , they are people who not only spend obscene amounts of money with AA , but more importantly spend obscene amounts of money that belongs to other people. These are the people who affect the travel of hundreds of others, such as heads of corporations who decide on company travel policy and so on.

The new VIP list will be a lot more exclusive than the previous one.
