Register and book by the end of the year and travel on non-stops between the US and Australia or New Zealand between February 1 and May 31, 2017 and you can earn bonus miles.
- It’s for advance bookings (minimum 60 days)
- For travel dates that head into a slower season

Here’s the earning table: The bonus is awarded for each flight segment and you can earn it for up to 3 segments.
You have to travel on American-coded flights (whether operated by American or Qantas — no Qantas flight numbers).
Existing tickets purchased before today aren’t eligible under the rules and I hate that.

The “select” economy fares that earn miles are: Y, H, K, M, L, W, V, G, Q, N, O and S
