Hmm, that lack of clarity on my and the OP's part got by me - yes, you will earn the EQM (BIS) miles you fly, the EQP as a multiplier (0.5 to 1.5) of the EQM you fly. If you have AA status, you will also get 25 - 100% bonus miles, but they would be redeemable miles, as are all miles, but not Elite-Qualifying.

So, if B, EQM = miles flown according to AA, EQP = EQM x 1.5.

If you had purchased a Business class fare (I, D, J) you would also earn 25% Class Of Service bonus (redeemable only) miles, and First, (A, F, P) 50% COS.

If you were signed up for a Challenge the EQP would be what you would be looking at.

If you are seeking annual status, EQM, EQP and segments all qualify.

AAdvantage Elite Qualifications.
