    For those who have to earn 500 mile upgrades, obviously they're earned every 10,000 miles, and 4-500 milers are earned.

    My question is how are the "miles toward upgrades" calculated--- for every flight flown, does one earn a minimum of 500 miles towards the 10,000 goal, or are "miles towards upgrades" calculated at actual miles flown? In other words, if I flew DFW-AUS, would I earn 183 miles towards the 10,000 miles, or 500 miles towards the 10,000 miles?

    Thanks!

    According to the AA site the minimum miles are included in the 10,000 needed, so if you flew 183 miles you would still get 500 miles credit towards the 10k.

    Thanks!

    Obviously I didn't scour AA.com well enough to find it. :)
