500 minimum is also 500 period for the shorter flights (excluding any applicable bonuses).
It would not work out to 500 + miles flown(x.25).

This exception as you mention is not so. On an economy tickey which gets 25% mileage you earn 500/4=125 miles for each leg - this is the minimum.

Welcome to FT, Mr. Bo

Many of us have flown since the July 1 changes and have seen the miles post accordingly. Please check your facts before posting incorrect info.

The minimum then is still 500? So if a LHR-PRG flight is 644 miles, it's then 500 miles + .25 of the 144 miles, correct?</font>
Incorrect. For the cheap fares, it's the greater of 500 miles *or* 25% of actual miles.

Your assumption might be true of BA if it had kept its old (3-4 years ago) system of 500 miles bonus on top of actual miles.
