Update to earning on flights

Starting July 11, 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 Qantas

Qantas connects you to more than 80 destinations in 20 countries from its hubs in Australia. When you fly on Qantas, 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 Qantas marketed and operated flights and Qantas codeshare flights operated by Qantas affiliate airline QantasLink, or 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 Qantas, you'll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.
