More Status Benefits

You’re the reason we fly, and you deserve to be recognized and rewarded for the flights you’re taking. That’s why we offer two different tiers and benefits to make every trip your favorite trip.

A-List Status

Designed to make getting to your destination even faster and easier. Simply fly 25 qualifying one-way flights (20 qualifying one-way flights starting in January 2024) or earn 35,000 tier qualifying points1 in a calendar year. Learn more about how to earn tier status or Companion Pass for 2023. Plus, starting January 2024, fewer flights will be required to qualify for tier status, select Rapid Rewards Credit Cards will earn even more tier qualifying points, and more. Learn more about upcoming Rapid Rewards program changes.
