    Just flew DEN-ORD yesterday on a G fare and had the 901 EQMs, elite bonus and 0.5 EQPs post, but on a separate line Is a 125 mile "AA.com Economy Class Bonus." No complaints from me, but I can't recall reading anything about an Economy Bonus before. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Thanks!

    It's a bonus for booking online from certain countries:

    Did the OP book his flight on AA.com from one of the eligible countries?

    I believe the OP has stated he lives in South America in other threads, so it's very likely.

    Well, this is interesting. I live in Chile but used a US credit card to book at AA.com; the same thing I have always done and have never seen these bonuses. For example, my SCL-MIA-ORD-DEN in J and F for this trip were booked the same way, and I have never seen the bonus appear before.

    Mike Reed, where did you find this? I'd like to look into it a bit more.

    THANKS!

    I think you want this: LINK.

    The English text Mike Reed quoted I believe came from the Flyerguide: LINK.

    Thank you both for this - I just had an additional 2,000 miles posted to my account for my previous flights that were still eligible!
