    American has been doing a lot to incentivize paid premium cabin travel this year. Among those, American is offering both bonus elite qualifying points and bonus redeemable miles for paid first & business class travel. Unlike Delta and United, American still has a "traditional" mileage based frequent flyer program, whereby you accrue miles based on how much you fly as opposed to how expensive your tickets are. These promotions are clearly intended to go after those who would benefit from the revenue based systems of Delta and United, which is a minority of customers.
