Confused About Mileage Plus

Tue Sep 20, 2005 1:15 pm

I was just reviewing my UA statement for this year, as I am planning many mileage runs in the future and wish to clear up some of my misgivings about qualifying for elite status. My current statement says that I have 16.5 EQS (elite-qualifying segments), and I'm rlly confused about this. How can there be half of a segment? If I plan 8 legs for my next mileage run, will i earn 8 qualifying segments? If anyone has any ideas, thanks.

Certain booking classes earn 150% elite qualifying miles and 1.5 elite qualifying segments.
