Exploring the American Airlines ConciergeKey Website

Any frequent flyer of American Airlines is sure to know about its super elite top tier status known as ConciergeKey or has at least heard the term mentioned at the gate during boarding. The program is by invitation only and requirements for earning the status aren’t publicly stated by American, although there is evidence that spending upwards of $50,000 per year with the airline is a good starting point.

AA even has its own website for ConciergeKey. A visit to the site, which has a very clean and modern look, will walk you through the many benefits of ConciergeKey — although it won’t give you any details on how to get one of those elusive invites.

Visitors are asked to scroll down — for what feels like forever — as a video plays in the background showing AA’s newest aircraft, cabins and cozy passengers. As you scroll you will see the long list of impressive perks for CK holders, such as having a ConciergeKey representative proactively monitoring your travel for interruptions, plane-to-plane ramp transfers in a Cadillac for tight connections at hubs, and guaranteed seats in the main cabin on the next flight if you do in fact miss a connection or are delayed for more than three hours.

The perks are impressive but so is the reported spend to be considered — not guaranteed — for a slot in the super elite program. If you do happen to be lucky enough to be bestowed with one of the exclusive invites you will also be able to log into your AA account via this separate website.
