UA A earns 300% on BD. With the routing ONT-SFO-PHL-TPA only the SFO-PHL-TPA segments earn 300% and the ONT-SFO earns 100% for a total of 21846. How did you come up with 48K for 1 round trip?

48k destination miles is only if you have over 55,000 status miles. Otherwise it will be 24k same as stated.

Great deal, so thanks to Colin for this and congratulations on making good use of it lovtofly3 ^

Remember that the 25% gold bonus is on base miles only.

At least on LH the 25% extra count for the status as well ^

I give up with the website, the 1K desk will clear it up I hope.

Correct ! But I dont see "A" which is what is required for this fare. So the booking will be in Y which will give you a free upgrade in the end but no mileage for F
