Am I reading the T&C correctly? The flights just have to be operated by USAirways/Express and ticketed after promotion registration, but I'm not seeing anything that says they can't be ticketed as United codeshares operated by US?

They gave me DEQMS based on the 500 min miles per segment last year I would expect the same this year.

Maybe I've just gotten luck with the right agents. I've explained my "mistakes" and it's worked. Today the first agent wouldn't do it and she transferred me to the Internet Desk and I explained that the I had booked before the promotion and I'd really like the DEQMS. The guy took care of it with no questions asked.

Today, I signed up for the Mileathon promotion at CO. I received an e-mail confirmation of my registration...that is service. I just don't understand why the folks at Tempe can do the same thing!?!

Dang these airlines and the way they run these promotions. This is the third time in a just the last few weeks I have been burned or almost burned by the rules and timing of booking vs. the promotion. WN has run two promotions in the past few weeks offering double credits. In both cases I had booked a reservation 24 hours prior to the promotion starting but was flying within the travel window. Now, guess what. I booked a reservation with US 24 hours ago prior to receiving the email for this promotion. Grrr...... I did pull off one flight promotion with WN. I just cancelled and used the TTF to rebook. I actually got 6.5 credits for a PHX-LAX flight.

I fly PIT-CLT-?? almost weekly as well.

I wish I would have received the 90 day Club promo. Didn't get that one, but I surely would have taken advantage of that one.

Not sure how many miles/segs I'll wind up with this year, but guessing north of 75K/100 segs and I'd consider rejoining the club.

Today is PIT-CLT-ATL at 1:40, but I have an E seat on both legs, so it's going to suck! The joys of booking last minute.

Can I book through Orbitz and still get the DEQM? I didn't see anything in the terms about this so I'm guessing its ok but just wanted to make sure.

I'm trying to do PHL-LAS-PHL but usairways.com won't let me book it because the turnaround in LAS is 57 minutes. Also, when booking through Orbitz will my reservation still show up in my DM profile and allow me to select preferred/exit seats?

Thanks

Yes to that question. As for your routing, did you try booking two separate one-way tickets? That often prices out the same as the round trip.

I feel your pain...I booked 2 RT's in consecutive weeks to BWI/SEA and BWI/LAX via the work travel agent, and then bammm, the double miles offer comes out....still will get the Platinum Preffered bonus, but it would have been nice to get those double miles...

I just got mine this evening, for what it's worth.

Just booked a MR for early May.

R/t for about $290. About 8200 EQMs, and now here's to good juju to the upgrade Gnome.

Since you've already booked it, care to share?

The only redeeming factor of my ZRH trip being canceled, is I can rebook on US and get DEQM's!
