AA 2x EQM/RDM ORD (& DFW) to LAX & SFO; will UA match?

Double EQM & RDM ORD-LAX/ORD-SFO - also DFW-LAX/SFO. Seems to target the VX competition too.

http://www.aa.com/viewPromotionDetai...&_locale=en_US

Just book a round-trip ticket and fly on American Airlines between Chicago O'Hare or DFW and Los Angeles or San Francisco from October 27, 2011, through March 31, 2012. You'll earn double flight miles AND double elite-qualifying miles, the miles that bring you closer to AAdvantage elite status membership - at an accelerated rate.
It is targeted, though.

Note: This offer is valid only for AAdvantage members with an address on file with AAdvantage Marketing programs in California, Illinois or Texas.

Terms and Conditions:
Offer only applies to AAdvantage members with an address on file with AAdvantage Marketing Programs in California, Illinois or Texas. AAdvantage promotion is valid for round-trip travel on purchased, published fare tickets on American Airlines marketed and operated nonstop flights between Chicago (ORD) or Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO) from October 27, 2011 through March 31, 2012. A round trip is defined as two one-way trips booked in a single reservation under one ticket number. Reservations containing open jaws are eligible. A maximum of one round trip is permitted per reservation. Reservation must be booked on or after October 27, 2011, to be eligible. Bonus elite qualifying miles earned in conjunction with flight activity during 2011 will count towards your 2012 membership year; bonus elite qualifying miles earned in conjunction with flight activity during 2012 will count toward your 2013 membership year. This offer does not increment the member's elite qualifying points or segments. Double elite-qualifying miles and double flight miles will be calculated at 100% of the base miles earned for the flights between Chicago or DFW and Los Angeles or between Chicago or DFW and San Francisco only. Promotional miles associated with this offer will be posted to the account of the traveling AAdvantage member within 6-8 weeks after qualifying activity posts to your account. Promotion does not apply to travel on mileage award tickets or fares that are ineligible for AAdvantage mileage accrual. Flights operated by our codeshare partners or oneworld alliance carriers are not eligible for this promotion. This offer cannot be combined with other AAdvantage promotions. Registration prior to travel is required.

Oh please oh please have a 2x EQM match... I need the boost to get to 1K this year (no thanks to a delayed business trip 3 days into 2012 instead of end of the year).

Also all EQM count for lifetime status this year, so it may well be worthwhile detouring through ORD.

IIRC, wasn't AA the one that started it last time for the ORD-SFO/LAX as well? It took a few weeks for UA to catch up I think.

It was, but it is very unusual for them to do DEQM/DRDM on a same route twice in a year back to back 2 months apart.

Interesting... I only need 2,500, maybe 3,000 more miles in December, but don't have anything booked yet. So this wouldn't help me if UA matched this year...but Q1Y12, now that's interesting. Might even give AA a go of it for Q1...been tempted to try it, although UA has been "nice" to me recently.

Does AA's offer allow connection through ORD? I thought UA's earlier promotion only applied to O/D between ORD & LAX.

Interesting! I am at 90K with 1,500 more booked. I WILL get there one way or another, but this would make it a little easier.
