When an itinerary like this is broken up...one leg in pay-to-upgrade RP class and the other in V (WU), I assume you only earn the MQM bonus on the RP leg, correct?
From the T-24 and RP this sounds like you accepted an offer during check-in? In which case no MQM bonus, sorry RP is usually the fare class for instrument (mileage/certificate) supported upgrades, which also do not earn bonus MQMs.
