Hello all
Does anyone know If the above also applies to AF? I need a short internal flight within France to get to MVP. The distance is around 300 miles and only qualifies for 25% mileage. I need the 500 mile minimum to be elite counting. Thanks!

As long as the fare class purchased is an eligible class for crediting to Mileage Plan and the flight faĺls within the Specified Flight numbers listed on their partner page the following applies.

Mileage earned is based on a percentage of actual flight miles flown, with 500 minimum miles on flights shorter than 500 miles. Miles may not be earned for tickets flown in O or X class of service. No miles will be earned for classes of service not listed above..

Thanks James - much appreciated. It is their terminology that is a little confusing as it is not overly clear if one receives a minimum of 500 miles regardless of the booking class or the flight distance is a minimum of 500 miles and the earning percentage is based on this - e.g. 50% earning fare classes earn 250 miles.

It will be 500 miles if it meets the criteria for crediting to Mileage Plan.

I should also note that once you reach MVP you will also get 50% bonus RDM as an Elite so your next eligible flight to credit to Mileage plan will be distance flown adjusted by fare class EQM + 50% RDM bonus (minimum 500 EQM + 250 Bonus RDM = 750 RDM)

In your example with an eligible flight of 1200 miles at 50% fare class credit will be 1200 0.50 = 600 EQM + 300 bonus RDM = 900 RDM . If the same eligible flight is 200 miles your credit will be 500 EQM (minimum) + 250 bonus RDM = 750 RDM. Similarly MVPG would be 1000 RDM (100% bonus RDM) and MVPG75K would 1125 RDM (125% bonus RDM).
