Update to earning on flights

Starting May 1, 2024, we’re updating the way you earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points on flights depending on where you book. Learn which flights earn miles and Loyalty Points and which do not.

Our partnership with Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways connects you to 140 destinations across 6 continents from its major hub in Doha. When you fly on Qatar Airways, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on Qatar Airways marketed and operated flights and Qatar Airways codeshare flights operated by other oneworld® carriers.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on Qatar Airways, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.
