    Are the Elite Qualifying Miles correct? I thought as of March 1, the miles earned were based purely on the fare paid multiplied by one’s status. Have I missed something?

    @Janice – EQM is still 2014 rules. Just RDM is based on elite qualifying dollars.

    This is all well and good- same same as yesterday. Different cities and VERY difficult to book. it’s VERY easy to find and price right on ITA. But then inputting the dates as per your instructions mostly leads to $1200+ fares on google flights and/or UA.com.

    There are many other cities that work on ITA connecting thru both NRT and HKG but not on GF/UA.com. Here’s an unbookable IAH-CEB i spent hours trying to book. ITA had over 100 routing choices at this price thru NRT and >100 thru HKG on these dates. If you can make this work on GF or UA.com then you’re magicians…
