Great thread!  Is a wiki asking for too much already?
The wiki is for everyone's question to have the same format so it's easier to read.

You really are Super Speed.  I changed my question to better express what I want.


Great thread!  Any possibility of some rules of thumb in the wiki?

I am based in Israel and frequently fly on Business ElAl (for work). Should I credit miles to AA instead of Matmid?
Does anyone know how many AA miles you'd get on a ElAl TLV-JFK (say on a Z class), I know it's 350 Matmid points but no clue about AA?
Many thanks!

Thanks for that. I carefully read the post and noted that Dan said he would "definitely credit ElAl flights to AA". However I couldn't find how many AA miles I would earn by doing this; any thoughts?
Thanks

Thanks.
Correct me if I'm wrong: that mean that to get a free TLV-JFK on AA miles one needs 45k, which is equivalent to 6.4 flights in Z class (7096 each)?

If you use ElAl you only need 2 flights in Z class (350 points) in order to get a "free" trip on ElAl points (700) ??

Seems like you're right and in this case you should probably credit to LY. Though IINM you're paying YQ on a LY award ticket.
