Hyatt and American Airlines launched a partnership back in 2019 (read more here) that allows World of Hyatt and AAdvantage members to earn both points and miles for hotel stays and flights if they hold elite status.
Part of the program is a yearly status fast-track offer that allows Hyatt members to accelerate their status with AAdvantage and for AAdvantage elite members to get status with Hyatt. New offers have just gone live.
You can access this offer on Hyatt’s website here and access AA here.

Hyatt Status Offer For American Airlines:
AAdvantage Gold and Platinum members get Explorist status for 90 days and can keep it through early 2025 by consuming 10 nights within 90 days.
AAdvantage Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum members get Explorist status for 90 days and can keep it through early 2025 by consuming 10 nights within 90 days or get a Globalist status if they stay 20.
AAdvantage Elite Status for World of Hyatt Members:
There appear to be offers for Platinum and Platinum Pro tiers for Globalist members, and you can sign up by going to Promotions in the AA app.
You get the status for 4 months and can extend it by collecting a specified number of Loyalty Points: 42,000 for Platinum Pro and 25,000 for Platinum.
The AAdvantage Platinum Pro status is quite worthwhile, as it maps to Oneworld Emerald, which allows first-class check-in, first-class lounge access (not AA lounges when flying domestically), and airport priority services when flying on Alliance airlines.
The Globalist is the only World of Hyatt status that has any meaningful benefits. You must consume 20 nights within 90 days to get it from this “challenge.”
This is not really an exclusive offer because every Hyatt’s sales department can sign you up for it.
Terms and conditions of AAdvantage Gold and Platinum Hyatt fast track offer:
To qualify for this offer, you must be an AAdvantage® Gold or Platinum member who has already successfully linked your AAdvantage® account to your World of Hyatt® account (“Eligible Member”). To participate in this offer, Eligible Members must register between September 12 and November 30, 2023, through the dedicated offer registration page provided by Hyatt.
Upon registration, the Eligible Member will receive a trial upgrade to Explorist status for 90 days (“Explorist Trial Period”). The trial will provide the member with the benefits of Explorist status, as set forth in the World of Hyatt program terms, provided that the member will not receive any Club Lounge Access Awards (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms). To maintain Explorist status through February 2025, the member must complete ten (10) Tier-Qualifying Nights (as defined in the World of Hyatt program terms) at any participating Hyatt hotels and resorts worldwide, participating MGM Resort destinations, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (“SLH”) hotels, and Lindblad Expeditions.
Only Tier-Qualifying Nights completed by the member during the member’s Trial Explorist Period will count toward this offer. Stays completed by the member prior to the start of their Trial Explorist Period will not count towards this offer (even if any night stayed otherwise qualifies as a Tier-Qualifying Night). Further, in order for Tier-Qualifying Nights completed during the member’s Explorist Trial Period to count toward this offer, the member must check out of their reservation during their Explorist Trial Period. If member checks into a reservation during their Explorist Period, but does not check out until after the Explorist Trial Period has ended, no nights stayed as part of that reservation will count toward this offer. Explorist Trial Period begins at registration and may not be extended. World of Hyatt Credit Card night credits do not qualify as Tier-Qualifying Nights.
If the member earns Explorist status through February, 2025 by completing the criteria above, their new status will be applied within 7 business days of checkout of the stay during which they complete the applicable requirement.
Limit one such offer each calendar year per Eligible Member except as otherwise provided. Hyatt reserves the right to alter or withdraw this offer at any time without notice. This offer is subject to the complete terms and conditions of the World of Hyatt program, available at worldofhyatt.com/terms. Additional American Airlines terms and conditions apply, including the AAdvantage® terms and conditions and American Airlines’ terms and conditions relating to the AAdvantage® and World of Hyatt promotion.
