  1. Good to know there is no ‘limit’ to the amount of bonus miles one can earn. From what I recall, though, the most any Medallion member can earn on any flight is 75,000 miles. So if a business class ticket from LAX-SYD r/t costs $10,000, as a Diamond I’d obviously hit the cap of 75,000 miles. With this promotion, though, I can earn an extra 50,000 bonus miles for a total of 125,000 miles. Right?
