Comair today announced that SkyMiles® members will earn triple miles for qualifying Comair flights booked between June 28, 2001, and July 31, 2001, and flown by July 31, 2001.

The bonus will be automatically applied to the member's account and is valid for paid travel on qualifying Comair routes. Customers with reservations for travel on Comair during the SkyMiles bonus promotional period that were booked prior to June 28, 2001, will qualify for this bonus.

Is that triple base miles or base + bonus?

Interesting, I don't see Islip ISP anywhere on the startup list. Perhaps we're just gone.

Seems pretty clear that the extra miles are bonus miles. The word "bonus" is used five times in the press release and the term "bonus miles" is included in the terms and conditions. Nowhere does the term "base" or anything similar appear in the release.

Patience, patience. From the same press release:
  • "Service to additional cities will be announced in coming weeks."
