Earn Miles

Earn miles when flying on Qatar Airways marketed and operated flights for travel on an eligible published fare ticket. Miles are also earned on Qatar Airways codeshare flights operated by oneworld carriers and oneworld affiliates.

Effective for travel on/after October 30, 2013, travel on Qatar Airways counts toward qualifying for AAdvantage elite status membership.

What is an eligible published fare ticket?

Eligible published fare tickets must be:

  1. Booked in a eligible booking code — find the fare booking code by looking for a single letter which immediately follows the flight number on your ticket. Next, compare this booking code against the airline's "Earn Miles" chart below to determine whether or not it is eligible to earn base miles and, at what percentage base miles will be accrued.
  2. On an eligible routing — check the airline's "Earn Miles" chart below to determine if any origin and destinations are excluded from earning base miles.
