I have to travel to Tokyo for work next week for ten days (over the last part of the promo). I am planning to fly:

DCA-PHL-SFO (all on US metal) and then SFO-NRT on UA. Same for the return.
My question is will my miles on the SFO-NRT leg count for this promo even though it's on a UA flight? I ask because when I looked on the Star Alliance webpage it reads US members get 100 percent of miles (whereas ANA was only going to give me 70 percent). What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
Consensus seems to be that regardles sof how booked, flights on US metal get the promo. T+C do say that it has to be on US metal, they dont say if you have to book it that way. So, UA flight # on US metal, you're in. US flight number on UA metal, you're out.

There were 2 promo's back to back. The MC one was supposed to be unly the TATL to select cities (but hubby got double on all segs). The second was a US Air promo where all segs qualified. They did overlap.

Double Miles and Try Preferred

Does the double mileage also count towards the trial preferred?

I have a dca-clt-sfo-phx-yvr-phx-dca itinerary (class A) next week and that alone would get to CP if so. I guess if not, it would almost get me to Platinum in any event.
