At this time, the full details of the status challenge opportunities are not available, however both Hyatt and American Airlines AAdvantage will be offering a special opportunity for attendees who do not hold the highest status available. This page will be updated when all the details of the challenges have been confirmed.
American Airlines AAdvantage
To help facilitate those looking to transfer their allegience to American after the DO, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a free challenge for status. You will be required to fax proof of your status, and you will be challenged over to the equivalent status from a non-oneworld program (ie. 2P to Gold, 1P to Platinum, and 1K to EXP). In order to complete the challenge by flying 5,000/10,000/20,000 Base Miles in order to be Gold/Platinum/Executive Platinum.
