Flying Economy or Premium Economy when flying on Qantas (crediting to AAdvantage)

Flying Economy or Premium Economy when flying on Qantas (crediting to AAdvantage)

  1. Anonymous

    I’m planning to do a multi-city trip (HKG->SYD->MEL->BNE->HKG) on Qantas (crediting to AA), and I’ve been having a hard time deciding whether to fly Economy or PE. I’ll have a segment in December 2016 and three segments in January 2017. My concern is whether it is worth to pay the extra bucks for more EQMS when flying PE.

    [B]Flying Premium Economy on Qantas (Crediting to AA)[/B]
    Ticket Price: $1715
    Miles earned: 11268.4 = $169 (1.5 per mile)
    EQMs: 8494.5EQDs: $1245.86

    [B]Flying Economy on Qantas (Crediting to AA)[/B]
    Ticket Price: $848
    Miles earned: 2561 = $38.415 (1.5 per mile)
    EQMs: 2831.5
    EQDs: $283.15

    Hi [USER=2126]@Edward[/USER]

    It depends, $900 is a lot of money. Will the premium econ put you close to the next tier? If not then I would not bother as the flight is not that long. But it’s up to you.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey [USER=1837]@tconway02[/USER] , I guess you’re right! Paying $900 in addition in order to get more EQMs and miles just don’t really make sense. And plus, I should be able fly for less than that amount of money to get more EQMs anyway. Thanks btw!

    Also keep in mind that you need four AA segments to qualify for AA elite status. If you are not getting those then all the other elite qualifying activity won’t count.

    Oh yes, I usually fly AA but I just happen to be in Hong Kong this time. Thanks for the heads up!
