AA DEQM promo question

Jump to last reply

I wonder if someone can answer a few Qs I have; and perhaps double-check my math? I have been PLT for a few years, and was NOT planning to fly much this year. I had set my mind on dropping down to GLD after Feb 2010. But now I have some unexpected trips plus the DEQM promo, I'm trying to keep PLT.

Qs:
From T&C
1) AAdvantage elite-qualifying double mile offer is valid only for travel on eligible purchased, published fare tickets on American Airlines, American Eagle or AmericanConnection® marketed and operated flights between September 2, 2009, and December 15, 2009, regardless of when the ticket was booked or ticketed. Flights operated by our codeshare partners or oneworldTM alliance carriers are not eligible for this promotion.

The way I understand this, is that if it's NOT AA metal I'm flying, I don't get DEQM, even if the flight is sold with an AA flight #. Correct?

2) Double elite-qualifying miles will be calculated at 100% of the elite-qualifying miles earned for each applicable flight

If the flight is <500 miles, I still get 500 x 2 EQM?

3) Pls double check my calculations:

As of today, I have 18,340 EQM

I flew BOS/LHR r/t last week, those DEQM bonus miles (3265 miles per leg) have not been credited yet. Therefore, I should have 18,340 + 3265x2 = 24,870 miles

In early Dec, I will fly BOS/LAX r/t. BOS/LAX is 2611 miles. With DEQM, I should get 2611x4 = 10,444 miles

So I'll only end up with 35,314 miles, even with DEQM bonus.

Right now, I'm thinking of flying BOS/LHR; BCN/JFK/BOS in Nov (not booked yet; all AA/AE metal). BOS/LHR = 3265. BCN/JFK/BOS = 3832+500 = 4332 DEQM for this trip = 7579x2 = 15,194 miles

Therefore, if I go on this November trip, I'll end the year with 35,314 + 15,194 = 50,508?

Since I'm cutting it this close, I just want to make sure my math is right so I don't end the year just short of 50k. I don't want to spend $ on MR if I end up short. Thanks in advance.
