2015 Additional Miles program

Confused on the new 2015 additional bonus miles program. Here’s my itinerary.

ROUND TRIP LIT>DFW>HGK>MNL

The HGK>MNL legs are on Cathay.

How many TOTAL miles will I earn and how many of those miles go towards elite qualifying miles. I am currently a Gold member.

What was the purchased class of service and the fare code? Most of the bonuses are for premium classes/fares.

The basic RDM can be found using a third party, like webflyer or milecalc

Your elite qualifying miles will equal your butt-in-seat miles for fares on AA or US (including AA codeshares of partner airlines). Discount econ fares on CX and other airlines may not earn 100% miles - read aa.com carefully before assuming 100% mileage earning on partner airlines.

Thanks for your response.

It will be a refundable business class ticket roundtrip.

You'll earn 8611/EQM each way for LIT-DFW-HKG; its another 700 miles or so to/from HKG/MNL; so in total you would be looking at about 9300 miles each way, or 18,600 EQM for the trip.

Both RDM (redeemable miles) & EQP (elite qualifying points) will be much more - based on the 2015 "currency promo" and points bonuses
