I didnt realize that. I knew you got the MQD, but thought you only got the bonus if it was an actual upgrade (meaning all segments). However checking mine I see the same thing.

So does that mean on segments one can earn the higher mqm?

If pax is going from rdu to sfo and pax upgrades rdu to atl they would earn the bonus on the rdu to atl leg even if on the same trip atl to sfo was not upgraded?

That's what this look like, although we don't know whether the original ticket was a broken fare or not. It could also be a lucky mistake or some sort.

Has anyone upgraded a seat on line recently and noticed whether delta.dumb shows the number of MQMs to be earned the way MQMs are shown at the time of ticket purchase?
