No, The Platinum Card® from American Express does not offer the ability to earn airline elite status.

But it does offer many other great benefits, including the following elite status:

  • Hilton Honors Gold; 
  • Marriott Bonvoy Gold;
  • Hertz’s President Circle;
  • Avis Preferred Plus; and
  • National Emerald Club Executive.

If you are looking for help earning elite status, you could earn Delta Medallion Qualifying Miles by spending on the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card or Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card.
