    Hi Lucky,
    Im currently at 180k miles all domestic and $26k. I will hit over 200k miles but haven't heard about being invited to the private CK world. Any thoughts?

    There's no set criteria to get an invitation but some speculate that you need to spend $50k or more in a year with American.

    One of my clients is over $60k for the past two years with no invite and all of his trips are premium cabin, long haul international flights. He also wonders what it takes to get invited.

    I had read somewhere that they use CK to target influencers who can move things like corporate travel for a company towards AA in addition to very high value customers. Not sure how true that is but basically it's an opaque process with no one other than AA being able to tell you why or why not you were invited.

    The influencer comment is true, and I think that is also the case for UA (Global Services) and DL (360). I've also read that you can obtain this as a part of Airpass based on certain level of spend commit.
