So I'm not the only one for whom the double EQM's are useless. Does everyone else fly 1000 mile segments and qualify with miles? I've flown 130 segments in the last 15 months and not a single one over 500 miles. I'll take the double miles for my balance, but double segments would surely be more useful to me.

I almost booked, but chickened out DCA-PHL-ZRH-PHL-DCA for 450 A/I R/t. Spending 750ish (Flight plus 2 nights hotel and food) for a MR was pushing it haha.

Still an amazing deal for europe.

Yea. I've passed on BCN, ZRH and DUB fares. Just can't justify it right now, especially since last year's horrible year for air travel meant I went to FRA for $400 during DEQM.

I am still looking for some cheap transcons from PHX. I can find BUF for fairly low but not low enough on the dates I really want to go. Grrr.

PHX-HNL is a pretty good run with DEQM. Still lots of dates left at $288 AI, which is about 2.4 cpm for 11600 miles.

I am actually flying to ANC in 2 weeks (in paid FC). So if I understand this all correctly, I will get the 50% bonus towards preferred per the promo, and ALSO the 50% class-of-service bonus for a paid FC ticket?

You should get a 100% bonus for the miles flown plus the COS bonus. In order to get the promo bonus EQMs, you had to have registered for the promor before you booked.

Ahh, tahnks for that info. I did register before booking, so it looks liek I ought to be in good shape!

Booked 14 segments for travel through early June, yep, week before this came out. Grrr.......

I'll probably get one flight added in that will actually count in the promo....

This is great news. The one thing that I don't like is not getting double eqm's for flights I already flew after the promo started (didn't find out about it until today) and apparently not getting double eqm for upcoming flights already booked but will be flown within the period.

I don't mind the registering part as it is a benefit for those of us who really care about this rather than someone else who doesn't work hard at it simply being auto enrolled.

would be interesting to see what other airlines do this???

But will be curious to see if anyone is successful in getting Tempe to retro some flights that happened during the period? I do understand why they are doing it the way they are(although don't like it) they want to measure if it spurs new business

Not just to measure if it generates new business but simply to cause people to book more flights. I don't like because of the travel I have already booked but why should they give a bonus if you're already flying them. The idea is to generate more passengers.

True, but US should also reward those who were good enough to already book flights during the promo period. Correct me if I'm wrong, but last year, when many of airlines were offering DEQM, US was the only one that required you to register before you booked.

postings?
 
Anyone seen these miles posted yet to their accounts after travel is complete?

You're absolutely right. I debated writing that because I agree with you but at the same time understand that US is trying to get more people to book flights.

I had all three of my flights (transcons) for this period booked before they announced the program. I figure to finish at Plat for the year, but this would have had me knocking on the door to CP. :(

I had three bookings made in this period prior to registration and almost a fourth but I was able to get that cancelled and rebooked after signing up. One thing to note is that last weekend I was flying on an itinerary booked a couple of months ago and I had an agent make a routing change for me at check-in. The re-routed flight segment qualified for double PQM :) I was shocked to see it pop up in my account today.
