According to FlyerTalk, AA is now status matching United Elites all the way up to Executive Platinum status! This is a huge promotion, especially considering that in the past the only way to do a pseudo status match with AA was to sign up for one of their “Challenge” programs where you needed to fly 5,000 elite qualifying points (which by the way are much harder to attain that elite qualifying miles) for Gold or 10,000 EQPs for Platinum status within a 90-day period.
According to the last few posts, the status match might be suspended, but I’m sure that it’s worth a try. Some people have stated that they were offered the promotion as recently as an hour ago. If you’re interested, I would call right now. Good luck!
