*Iberia does not operate First class. The booking classes F and A will only accrue for travel in First on codeshare flights where Iberia is the marketing carrier and American Airlines or British Airways is the operating carrier.

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 Iberia 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.
