    Hi All,

    I guess the title says it all…
    I recently acquired Premier Gold status and am very close to gaining Platinum, I am flying to Denver in 2 days to go Skiing with my family and I have just been upgraded from a B-Class ticket… (Ikr, poor me…) I booked B-Class because it was $100 cheaper than First but I knew my upgrade chances would be good. However, I can’t seem to see if I will receive PQMs and Award miles for my flight.

    Yep, you receive mileage and PQD credit based on your original fare class.
