becoming PLT after taking CX flight - what happens?

Hello.

I need 1800 miles to make PLT, which I will get next week when I fly SFO-HKG on CX. Will I get the PLT bonus (it's 50% extra, right?) for this flight? Is there anything I need to tell AA so that it posts correctly?

Thanks!

If you are flying on CX, only eligible fares will give you miles. Here is the Link to the fare codes. If it is AA codeshare on your ticket, then you will get miles for elite status. You will receive 100% bonus on the segment when you become PLT and thereafter.

clarification

We are flying H class on CX 873. We provided our AA numbers when we made the reservation. I don't know if it's a code share... booking it through AA was almost $700 more expensive per ticket so we booked it as CX. Did we do something wrong? Is it too late to fix it?

H is fine

Miles should count just the same as if it was AA.

Yes. H class on CX will give you 100% elite miles and you should get 100% bonus.

When I first made PLT in 2000, it was also via a CX flight. When it posted though, I only got the GLD 25% bonus. I sent an e-mail to AAdvantage customer service, and they changed it to the 100% bonus within 24 hours.

Don't be surprised if the miles/QPts take some time to post. BA flights seem to be posting pretty quickly on AA, but CX flights are taking over a week at present.

CX posting schedule

I believe I read in the forums CX only sends the data to AA on Mondays. I am sure the CX experts can confirm.
