EQMs Earned in First Class on Routes Less than 500 Miles

How many EQMs do I earn if I fly in First Class on routes less than 500 miles?

For example, lets say I am flying San Francisco (SFO) -> Las Vegas (LAS) in First Class (Fare Class, "I") which is a distance of 414 miles. Would I earn:

(A) 500 EQMs
(B) 725 EQMs (414 + 311). 311 is 75% Premium Cabin Bonus
(C) 875 EQMs (500 + 375). 375 is 75% Premium Cabin Bonus

Thank you for all your help!

It is based on the 500 minimum. So you will get 875 EQM.

And any Elite bonus will be based on the 500 mile minimum too. If you are flying F on a sub 500 mile flight as a 75K, EQM/RDM is 875 + 125%(500) Elite Bonus RDM = 875 + 625 = 1500 RDM
