American Airlines ConciergeKey members receive Hyatt Globalist status – top tier, although confirmed suite upgrades are based on nights stayed rather than status so the benefit doesn’t include those.
It seems like Hyatt is extending a similar reciprocal benefit to some of their top tier Globalist members. Surprisingly, these Globalists – rather than rarified Courtesy Card members – are being given American Airlines Executive Platinum for 2020 (expires January 2021).
A reader emailed me earlier that he had received a phone call from his Hyatt concierge letting him know he’d receive Executive Platinum status. So far he has 55 nights and less than 25,000 base points, so he’s not an ‘overperforming’ Globalist either.
There are other reports of this as well. All have reported being informed by phone call. Data points I’m aware of so far are from the New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco markets.
Are you a Hyatt Globalist? Have you received word that you’ll be given American Airlines Executive Platinum status?
- I’d assume no current AAdvantage Executive Platinums are receiving this
- And that they’d know based on having linked American and Hyatt accounts together in their profile
- I’m curious if we can ascertain a criteria that’s being used. Whether you’ve been targeted for this or not, what’s your stay pattern like?
The American Airlines-Hyatt partnership is new this year. So far it’s been nice to double dip on points-earning. Some folks have benefited from status challenges. However being straight-out given American’s Executive Platinum status is really generous.
