    Today, I received the email from AA saying:

    Thank you for participating in our Double Miles, Double Thanks promotion (Promotion Code AATHX).

    An additional 29,390 elite‑status qualifying miles and 14,700 elite‑status qualifying points have been added to your account for flight activity posted through December 13, 2012.


    The above information indicates that I fly 29390 miles through Dec 13, 2012;

    However, this number is different from what I calculated. My calculation is as follows,

    2012MR Routes Mileage(Base) EQM
    2012.11.14 MIA-ORD-PSP- DFW-MIA 5096 10192
    2012.11.28 MIA-DFW-PSP- DFW-MIA 4494 8988
    2012.12.01 FLL-ORD 1182 2364
    2012.12.02 ORD-MIA 1197 2394
    2012.12.06 TPA-ORD-LAX- ORD-FLL 5683 11366
    2012.12.07 FLL-ORD-SFO- MIA 5613 11226
    2012.12.10 FLL-ORD-SEA 2903 5806
    2012.12.11 SEA-DFW-BOS 3221 6442
    2012.12.12 BOS-DFW-SEA 3221 6442
    2012.12.13 SEA-DFW-FLL 2779 5558

    That is, I actually fly 35390 miles at the end of 2012.12.13. I fly 29389 miles at the end of 2012.12.11. Definitely AA only posts the DQM until Dec 11 (Although there is 1 mile difference, it is may be the difference between gcmap.com and AA dataset).

    Is there anybody who have the similar issue? Do I need to worry about this? My whole MR only gives me 270 EQM over 100K and I will go to Hawaii tomorrow. I have no time to book another MR.

    Thanks,

    Yi

    Thanks,

    What is the concern here? Have the flights from the 12th & 13th posted yet? When did they post? If they hadn't posted by the 13th when the report was run to build the email then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The flights on 12 and 13 have been posted one day after the actual flights, i.e. 13 and 14, respectively. The latest update time of DEQM, I believe, is last Sunday, Dec 16, 2012, when my EQM reflects up to Dec 11.
