I am not complaining either. It was just a surprise and I did not understand how that 1000 miles arrived in my account. On the other hand I got a strange 10,000 miles at the end of last year that I have yet to understand. Maybe a Christmas gift...? I do not complain about whatever Delta decides to drop into my account.

+1 ^

I think as easily as DL giveth, they can taketh away. And even KP won't be able to help when that happens...

Wow! I just checked my SM account and it is all fouled up. Initally, everthing was correct with the exception of not having my last two legs post.

Now those legs are posted, but wrong Flight #'s.

The 2nd half of the international bonus disappeared.

My total miles have obviously taken a dip.

I'm not too worried, though. I'm sure KP will get it corrected.

All bonuses posted on the outbound STL-DTW-ICN -- maybe before the flight landed in Seoul, including the new route bonus for DTW-ICN. And opuped DTW-ICN.

You got the new route bonus PLUS the STL bonus (i.e., double EQM and half of the 25K kicker)?

I did BNA-JFK-LAX-SYD r/t. Got the 2X + intl bonus + JFK-LAX bonus. Altogether about 100K.

How many MQMs?

Been reading FT for a little while now and needed to post. So here is my first question!

Can someone tell me how many MQMs I should have received for the following with this promotion?


PIT-DTW-PVG
PVG-NRT-MSP-PIT

50% Class Bonus on all segments

From what I've read here its supposed to be total MQM's * 3 = 69,447 MQMs

But for this trip my total MQMs credited were 46,298?

Is my math right? Should I be due more MQMs?

Thanks

Great. Thanks. How many EQM?

I appreciate it.

I could look it up for an exact figure but I believe it was 44,918 MQM's. It was enough to give me a jump on DM a month before projected.

ianturner, it's been confirmed earlier that this promo doubles the MQMs period--since the OP for this question was in Y/B/M or business, they got the 50% COS bonus and that is also doubled.

daburgh2010, I think DL's math comes out right. I checked gcmap.com, and it came up with a base mileage of 15,431. Multiply that by 3 and you get 46,293, which is just about what DL came up with.

After checking your numbers, it looks like you multiplied 15,431 * 1.5 COS bonus, and then multiplied by 3 where you should have multiplied by 2 (PIT DMQM).

Happy travels!

Also, here is the wiki page for many questions already asked about this: http://flyerguide.com/wiki/index.php...ies_Bonus_2010

Just an FYI- I had some irops that affected my international spoke cities bonus, including getting booked onto a different carrier to a different city, so emailed Kevin, and got his out-of-office reply. Per his email, I tried Andrea, and she did a fantastic job, figuring out what should have happened and getting all the credits and bonuses completely right within a day or two. So while many have praised Kevin, my experience with Andrea could not have been better.
