For Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon marketed flights, the actual Mileage Credits earned by a Member are based on distance zone between the origin airport and destination airport, and the fare class of travel booked, paid for and ticketed.
For other Partners’ marketed flights, the actual Mileage Credits earned by a Member are based on a percentage, and class flown, of the Great Circle Distance in miles between the origin airport and destination airport.
Certain fares and flights are not eligible for earning miles. These include staff travel, industry/agency discounts, award travel, prize, donation, group and other special discounted tickets, free tickets, chartered flights and certain codeshare flights.
There is no guarantee of minimum Mileage Credits. Mileage Credits earned are not affected by complimentary upgrades or involuntary downgrades.
If a Member's air travel is disrupted due to reasons beyond the control of CPA or an Airline Partner (for example, extreme weather conditions/acts of God) and the Member is forced to change carrier, Mileage Credits on the disrupted segments of the purchased ticket will only be credited to the original itinerary. In such circumstances, the Member will need to provide supporting documentation to claim the Mileage Credits.
AML and/or all Partners may exclude specific flights from the crediting of Mileage Credits with or without notice to a Member.
