If you are an elite member in CO or US' frequent flyers program, you earn a minimum of 500 EQM on these flights.

If you are an elite member in UA, you only get the actual miles flown for the legs that are on US. I had a hard time getting ual.com to recognize my OnePass number; I ended up calling UA reservations and having them enter it for me.

Thanks for posting this; nice to see some MRs are starting to hit out of NYC; I booked one for 11/5 with slightly less-than-optimal EQM.

Crediting to UA, all elites get 500 EQM per segment minimum (even if the actual distance is less than that). US-operated segments don't count, though, but IIRC they do if crediting to CO.

FYI, if you are a UA/CO elite, but not a US elite, you still earn only the actual flown miles on US segments.

CO elites earn 500-mile minimums on US segments too.
