    I know the Amex platinum now gives 5X on airfare purchases, but does that include incidentals too, or is this just for the ticket?

  2. Gaurav

    I think anything that codes as an airline purchase will earn 5x.

  3. PhatMiles

    Incidentals on UA and AA counted towards 5X. I can confirm personally.
