I was wondering if this flight I am looking would qualify for the Double miles. It's BWI-PHL-SEA-PHL-BWI for $280.80. Regular miles would be 4920 but with the double miles it would be 9840 which would make it comee out to 2.8 cpm IF the double miles applied. Did I calculate that right?

The thing is though ita shows it as this fare EXATNJ6Y but when looking at the fare rules it says travel on 16 May 10 but the last flight is on 16 May 10 at 931 am. So I am really confused.

Nope, you short-changed yourself. BWI-PHL and PHL-BWI get 500 miles (the minimum for every segment on US). Then you double each of those. You should get 11,480 miles!

Awesome that means it's 2.4 cpm then!?! That's pretty good right? And it works out on a weekend that I am off and do not have my son and a day in SEA would be nice. Never been and I have a relative there!

If he's not preferred, he doesn't get a min segment bonus. Actual miles only....

Dang. My bad. I forgot that US doesn't give the 500-minimum to non-Preferreds anymore.

It took 2 business days after the trip for both types of miles to show up in the account.

I saw this question being asked, but didn't see the answer.
I see some cheap prices where us is used to fly to west coast but flying back is on CO/UA. Do the flight back also counts as double if I use US FF#.
What about entire trip on CO/UA?

US metal only. My UA flights last week did not earn me double miles. It was a mix of US/UA segments, and only the US segment gave me double.

Still an amazing deal for europe.
What dates? I want to go to Zurich. The cheapest flights that I saw for weekends in May were around $650 ai.

I lost out on last year's race to preferred by 87 miles because my CP hubby was doing the counting. Didin't catch it till it was too late.

Ended up working on a refund for these three PNR's because of the lower cost - ended up with a $300, a $200, and an $87 future travel vouchers. I'm happy with that. Maintained F on the west to east legs - none of the seats seemed to change. I think one might have a seat problem with a full cancellation/rebook - too dodgy.

My CSR really went above and beyond doing all of this while dealing with computer shutdowns and inconsistencies in website pricing as opposed to what she was initially able to bring up on her system - she perservered! Mailed an AB cert for her.

Now if the DEQM angels would just come in to play..... (not holding my breath though!)

can someone confirm that the miles that have been posting have been from the JS promotion? My trip from Wednesday posted, but the double miles did not post.
