Members of American’s AAdvantage frequent-flyer program with Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum elite status will be eligible for free domestic upgrades on Alaska next year.

Meanwhile, members of Alaska’s Mileage Plan with MVP Gold 75K, MVP Gold, and MVP status will be able to request preferred seats including Main Cabin Extra on American, and MVP Gold 75K members will be eligible for one-class upgrades on American’s domestic routes as well as on service from Seattle to London, Bengaluru, and Shanghai when American launches those routes next year.

“Our upcoming membership in oneworld makes these added benefits with American even more rewarding for our guests,” said Andrew Harrison, the airline’s chief commercial officer.
