Can I See / Estimate EQD / EQM / RDM After Booking, Before Flying?

No. You can see your estimated EQD - EQM - RDM earnings for AA marketed flights once you have selected flights on AA.com before you book, and you can see all your actual earnings once you have flown and the flights have posted to your AAdvantage account.

If you use a tool to break down your trip so you can see your base fare and carrier imposed fees you can calculate your estimated EQD (for those flights earning EQD using that method, AA marketed flights). For estimated EQM and RDM you can calculate based on flown miles, fare class credit, etc.

For further information, see aa.com:

AAdvantage® earning estimates - FAQ
(aa.com "AAdvantage program updates" - link

Q. Will I be able to view my expected earnings for travel on flights marketed by American and by other airlines online?

A. You will be able to view your expected earnings for travel on flights marketed by American Airlines. Trips including flights marketed by other airlines will not display your expected earnings at this time.

Q. Where can I see how many award miles and Elite Qualifying Credits I can expect to earn for my trip on aa.com?

A. This information is displayed on aa.com after you’ve selected your flights, just prior to purchasing your reservation, on the Review and Pay page.

Q. Will promotional bonuses from special offers be included in the AAdvantage® earnings displayed?

A. No, promotional bonuses will only be displayed when your flight is posted to your account.

Q. Do I need to include my AAdvantage® number in order to view my expected earnings?

A. Yes, you will need to include your AAdvantage® number at the time of booking to view your expected earnings.

Q. Can I retrieve my expected earnings after I’ve purchased my trip online or for reservations booked elsewhere that can be viewed online?

A. No, you will only be able to view your expected earnings prior to purchasing your ticket on the Review and Pay page online.


Q. Why are the earnings shown referred to as estimates and expected earnings?

A. Award miles and Elite Qualifying Credits shown could differ from what you actually earn if you change your ticket, your elite status level changes or due to currency fluctuations for purchases not made in USD.

FT: Q. What are the rules governing earning AAdvantage miles etc. on codeshares?

1. AA codeshares earn as if you were flying AA.

2. oneworld airline codeshares operated by oneworld airlines earn according to the marketing airline (airline whose flight is being flown, e.g. CX operated by JL earns as CX. oneworld marketed flights (codeshares) operated by non-oneworld airlines, e.g. EI operated by BA currently, do not earn AAdvantage miles, etc.

3. Exceptions include Qantas/ QF codeshares operated by non-oneworld airlines, e.g. EY, FJ, etc.; many JL flights operated by non-oneworld airlines and some AY flights operated by non-oneworld airlines do earn AAdvantage miles, etc.

I've read above that AA PE gets 1.5 EQM. I just booked a flight in PE and it booked into "P" class and the current AA table shows P as earning 2.00 EQM, but labels P as "Discount First/Business". I booked through citi (hoping to get special fare for EQD).

Are we expecting a new table to come out that shows only 1.50 EQM when booking "P" premium economy? Or is that stated somewhere else on the website?

No, its already there! This is an appalling piece of web design that should get someone fired - the new table is below the one you read as they have ended up not being in chronological order - and the new table is folded up so it looks older, not newer.

Its been like that since May - not sure why they wouldn't fix it.

Well, look at that. I could have looked 1,000 times and not figured that out.

You are probably looking at the table that does not apply to your situation.

https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/...n-airlines.jsp

Note that there are two tables

1)For travel on or after January 1, 2017
and
2)For travel on or after May 4, 2017

P, if it's sold as Discount First/Business then it should be 2 EQM; while sold as Premium Economy it should be 1.5.

But I agree AA needs to eventually correct the booking codes regardless of cabins offered.
