    Since some of the travel tools I use quote different mileages than what actually posts to my account, I wanted to start a list of actual, credited mileage not including bonuses. In case this varies by airline, please list which airline you received the posted miles from for updating. It might be a bit tedious, but I thought it would be nice to have a reference list in one place.

    DFW
    -- LAS AA: 1,055
    -- LHR AA: 4,751
    -- MCI AA: 460
    -- MSY AA: 448
    -- ORD AA: 802
    -- SEA AA: 1,659

    LAS
    --> DFW AA: 1,055

    LAX
    --> SEA AA: 954

    LHR
    --> DFW AA: 4,751
    --> ORD AA: 3,953

    MIA
    --> MCO AA: 192

    MCI
    --> DFW AA: 460
    --> ORD AA: 403

    MCO
    --> MIA AA: 192

    MSY
    --> DFW AA: 448
    --> MIA AA: 674
    --> ORD AA: 837

    ORD
    --> DFW AA: 802
    --> LHR AA: 3,953
    --> MCI AA: 403
    --> MSY AA: 837
    --> SEA AA: 1,721

    SEA
    --> DFW AA: 1,659
    --> LAX AA: 954
    --> ORD AA: 1,721

    I would add to list list if my AA account wasn't still having transaction pending issues. I'm glad I haven't been flying these past few weeks (10 days is the longest I've been on the ground since July). I do notice that AS and AA have different opinions on how far LAX-SEA is. AA says 954, AS sometimes says 956 in the app. It always posts to my AA account as 954 though.

    I have been using AA for many years, ans find that as flight patterns chnage, the miles are usually adjusted 1 or two lower. So I always use the lower figures to plan.

    Not only does credited mileage vary by ffrequent flyer program/airline, but these can also vary over time.

    A generally close indication is found from using gcmap.com or similar (as noted in your other thread on the same topic).
