American Airlines to award up to 12,000 bonus miles per flight

In 2015, American Airlines will be the only major airline that rewards  loyalty up to three times, which means more miles for the distance you fly, the fare you buy, and your AAdvantage elite status.

Beginning January 1, you can earn a bonus on top of your base mileage, class of service bonus, and elite status bonus when you fly on a purchased First or Business class ticket through December 31, 2015.

The promotion applies to all First and Business Class tickets purchased on American Airlines, US Airways or eligible partner flights marketed by American or US Airways* to earn the additional AAdvantage/US Airways Preferred bonus miles.

The amount of your bonus depends on the length of your flight, your booking class and elite status. See the chart below for further details:
