Why does the milecalc.com calculator factor in status then?

To be clear, for the purposes of reporting in Mileage Run deals, cpm is calculated based on EQM historically, which for UA is still based on the GCMap distance of the route.

RDM does indeed vary based on status but isn't typically a consideration for reporting in MRDeals forum (though that is now changing).

Gotcha but my initial math is correct. I just forgot to include that this is based on a roundtrip fair. So my subject heading should've been EWR->SEA->EWR
