I Qualified For AAdvantage Gold Using The E-Shopping Portal (Updates From March 2023)

Starting in March 2023, AAdvantage will introducte new changes to simplify the program and make the qualification easier. Some of these changes are exciting to me, as I can try to qualify for higher tiers of the program, considering that I look forward to travel a lot to the US. However, many frequent flyers argue that these changes dilute the value of the program, making the higher levels less exclusive.
