American has just announced double elite qualifying and redeemable miles for nonstop travel between Chicago/Dallas and Los Angeles/San Francisco for trips booked and flown between October 27, 2011 and March 31, 2012. The offer is only valid for AAdvantage members with addresses in California, Illinois, and Texas.
Roundtrip travel is required, though it doesn’t have to be between the above cities. In other words, I could fly Tampa to Los Angeles via Chicago both ways and earn double elite qualifying and redeemable miles between Chicago and Los Angeles (assuming I had an address in one of the above states).
The bonus miles will post to eligible accounts 6-8 weeks after travel.
Registration is required using promotion code DEQ11 here.
This is the second time this year that American is offering this exact promotion, so I’m guessing they’re feeling the heat from Virgin America (or at least want to remind them who’s boss).
