Double points and A-List challenge: What is a Qualifying Flight?

Tourist

I was lucky enough to be able to register for the "Double points and A-List challenge". My question is this: what is considered a "qualifying flight"? Does the price of the flight or the trip duration have any impact on whether the flight itself qualifies for the A-List Challenge requirement of 3 (or 5, if you want A-List through the end of 2018) roundtrip flights?

 

Thank you in advance!

Thanks for trying to assist, but I remain unclear. I have read and re-read the text that is at the bottom of the offer and since I'm not very familiar with most rewards programs, I want to be sure that I am understanding the language. Unfortunately, pasting the same text that I already have as response doesn't answer my question. My question remains: is a qualifying flight simply a flight that I pay for, regardless of price or duration?

As long as it meets the other qualifiers listed, yes.
