From American Airlines

And airlines wonder why people have low opinions of them... this recently received from American Airlines:
In order to streamline our program, we are announcing a change to AAdvantage miles earned before July 1, 1989, also called Miles With No Expiration.

Starting November 1, 2012, these miles will automatically be converted to Miles Subject to Expiration...
