R Class Bonus Miles?

Has anyone purchased an R class ticket and received bonus miles (50% class of service)? This fare class is not listed on the NW web site.

I don't believe that R class is class that you can buy. It's the fare bucket that they put you into for elite upgrades.

I just booked a flight PWM->MKE->PWM for the week of 4/18, and the outbound leg showed "R" as the class for the PWM->DTW and DTW->MKE segments. When the email ticketing confirmation arrived, though, the first leg was "Y" and the 2nd "P" (in First). Don't know what's going on that week, but apparently there ain't no coach seats to be had getting from DTW to MKE at 9:13AM on Monday . . .

You can purchase R class fares; however, they're usually classes that put you into a nother class, denoted R2X where the X is the class you're placed into (e.g., R2PBF).

Thanks for the information. I just booked a couple of segments as R fares and the itinerary receipt now shows the class of service as P.
