I've had Platinum status with AA for almost 5 yrs but since I took a new job last year I didn't travel that often and I was downgraded to Gold status. In February I will be loosing my Gold status . Traveling without status is no fun - have to wait in long security lines, don't get to board first, can't use my 1st class upgrades and can't choose my seats. My question is do you happen to know of a way I can get Gold status again quickly with American Airlines???
