Many major air carriers, including American, provide elite perks for those frequent fliers that accumulate 1,000,000 (one million) miles. Specifically, American offers Gold (10,000), Platinum (50,000), and Executive (100,000) club levels with varying rewards and benefits (as well as protections), for those accumulating the required mileage within a calendar year. If a flier reaches a total of 1,000,000 American Airlines miles over a period of years, he/she receives a lifetime Gold membership, with no further miles required to sustain that membership, whether or not the flier travels within a calendar year. A total of 2,000,000 miles is an automatic lifetime Platinum membership, again with no further requirements. However, after the two million mark in a calendar year, American Airlines has no official, publicly-announced program to recognize any other significant mileage accumulated.
