I read in a number of these forums that the 1 million miles gold status comes with any miles you earn. I just got off the phone with AA and the person I spoke with said it's only FLIGHT miles. Now I'm confused. When I go to my account it says Program To Date Miles something like 835000. So I'm almost at the million. But my phone call just busted my bubble. Anywhere in the aa site to look to verify what you've all been saying?

Thanks for the comeback. I certainly believe those on dansdeals more than aa themselves, but where on the aa site can I read about this?

It's undocumented. So you won't read about it officially anywhere.

Thanks. Okay, I finally got someone at AA that knows about it. When you hit the million miles they automatically send you a Gold package in the mail. Looking forward. Thanks again.

Don't forget to change your address to make it an international one so that you get the better upgrade coupons!

What's a better upgrade coupon? So do you mean that before you hit 1 million you should change your address to a foreign one? After you get it you change your address back again? Another question. If I use mileage on AA to get a trip to Israel on ElAl and I have the lifetime gold, do I get benefits being the gold member or is only on AA flights?

 since ElAl is NOT a Partner Member of OW, any Elite Status with AA is good for nothing if/when flying on ElAl. That is if you are flying in coach, Biz will get you whatever ElAl gives to its Biz passengers

 the AA SWUs are ONLY good on a flight Operated by AA = any codeshare flight they can not be used = no way to use them to fly to/from TLV unless you fly ElAl to/from TLV and wherever AA flys to in Europe, then the AA flight Only if you purchase an expensive enough Coach tkt can may be UPed. I think the closest city would be Rome. So that would mean a 4 hour flight on LY in coach

 Being Gold will throw a couple of benefits to you when flying on a OW Carrier but nothing much, eg for lounge access you need to be Plat or 2MM level

It'll be very tough. Only other real option is transferring in points through SPG or DC
is there a fee to transfer DC to AA

OK. I got an email from AA that because I have the million lifetime miles I now reached gold status. Some questions. First, what are the great benefits? I looked at the list. Didn't seem that great. Also, does my wife get the same benefits like better checkin (I think thyat was one of them), free luggage, etc. when she's with me? Also, I remember something about using a foreign address. What was that good for. And am I out of luck because they said they're already sending me a package?
So what are all the great things, understanding that I don't travel more than once or twice a year.
I did get the 75000 extra miles for each of 4 credit cards (thank you again, Dan!) and we"re IYH going to Israel in the summer business class on ElAl. But then again, I don't suppose using mileage on another airline gives you anything for being AA Gold status?
Can anyone help me out here?
