American Airlines and World of Hyatt have just launched a partnership between their two loyalty schemes, but you need to be an elite member to benefit.

This new partnership will allow elite members to earn either bonus AAdvantage Miles at Hyatt properties and Hyatt points on American Airlines flights.  You must hold Gold status with AAdvantage or Discoverist status with World of Hyatt to be eligible to link your accounts.

Additionally, both companies have made it easier for elite members to match their AA and Hyatt status. If you hold American Airlines invite-only Concierge Key status you will receive Hyatt Globalist status free. Executive Platinum, Platinum Pro and Platinum members will be able to gain Hyatt status at an accelerated rate.

It will also be possible for World of Hyatt status holders to accelerate AAdvantage status, although the details of this are not yet clear.  You can find out more on aa.com here.
