    • @ Shark Cage Diving – Usually, when they require travel to begin and end in specific cities, they’ll mentions something like “travel must originate in” a specific location.

      With other offers similar to this one, they’ve awarded bonus miles on the segment, even if travel starts in a city that’s not on the list.

      For example, a DEN – DFW – NRT ticket will earn the usual number of miles on the DEN to DFW segment, and double AA miles on the DFW – NRT leg.

      I think that’s the case with this offer, but I’ve sent a not the AAdvantage team asking them for clarification. I’ll update with a comment when I hear back from them.

      Thanks for asking the question!

    • @ Shark Cage Diving – Just confirmed with the AAdvantage team:

      “double miles will be earned on the qualifying leg (example, DFW-NRT) regardless of origin city.”

      Thanks again for asking.

  1. Aadvantage geek – I have a question about aadvantage customer support, and was wondering if I could reach out to you directly. I didn’t see anything on the site which would allow me to email you directly, so I had to go to the comments. Let me know, would really appreciate your help.

  2. @ Jimgotkp – That’s correct.

    Platinum and Executive Platinum members earn elite status bonus of 100% of base miles. So the net effect of this offer is triple miles for the EXP and PLT.

    AAdvantage Gold members earns an elite status bonus of 25% of base miles.

    Thanks for reading!
