Upgrade Eligibility

  • Not all flights or all reservations are automatically eligible for an upgrade - Plusgrade upgrades are currently only available in a limited set of markets. You can check your eligibility starting six days prior to departure by entering your six character reservation record locator and last name in the search form above.
  • Elite Status Members: AAdvantage elite status members (Gold, Platinum and Executive Platinum members) should continue to request 500-mile upgrades (complimentary or purchased) as normal. This option is offered to passengers who aren't able to use 500-mile upgrades, either because they aren't AAdvantage members, or because they are traveling on fares that are not eligible. Rest assured that elite status member upgrade requests will continue to be given priority and will not be impacted by this program.
