    Presumably the PQD will be earned just like miles (earned after you complete the travel), right?
    E.g., if I book a trip in December 2013 for travel in January 2014, I’ll earn the PQDs in January, right?

      Yes, the PQDs will post based on date of travel.

        What happens if the trip is split, i.e. one leg is flown in Dec 2013 and one leg is flown in 2014? Do they count half the PQDs for next year? All very confusing 🙂

          There is pricing associated with each fare leg of a trip (not necessarily segment, but with each fare point.) I would imagine the revenue will count in the year in which the leg departed. So if you book a round trip JFK-SFO-JFK outbound Dec 20 return Jan 6, then you would get credit for the fare paid outbound in the current year, and the return would count in the following year. Note that isn’t necessarily half the roundtrip fare, since the legs could be in different classes or fares with different advance purchase requirements.

          The only real corner case is if you have an overnight flight on New Year’s Eve with onward connection the next day on a through fare – I would imagine that will all get counted in the year you departed, unless it happened to be two fares.

    Hi Seth – If you were to buy either award accelerator or premium award accelerator, would these count to the PQD? I can see perhaps award accelerator not counting, but the premium award accelerator you are essentially buying PQM, so this logically should count to PQD.

    For denied boardings and for service recovery, does UA give out ETCs or dollar off discount codes? And can you choose or influence?

    Good now know, now if I could just get them to respond to my requests to get the $1200+ fare credit from a trip back in July issued to me.
