*JL flights 53 and 54 between Tokyo Narita (NRT) and Nagoya (NGO), and flights 51 and 52 between NRT and Osaka Kansai (KIX) are considered international flights for the purpose of mileage accrual.

**EQDs will only count toward elite status qualification for travel beginning January 1, 2017 and beyond.

If a purchased fare booking code is not listed in the tables, no Elite Qualifying credits or award miles are earned. EQMs and EQDs are calculated based on a percentage of the distance flown as determined by the booking code. Elite bonuses do not apply to EQMs or EQDs.

Travel ticketed as an American Airlines marketed flight (booked as an AA flight number) and operated by Japan Airlines will earn AAdvantage® award miles, Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs), Elite Qualifying Segments (EQSs) and Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) according to the American mileage accrual chart.
