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.
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.

G class only earns 50% when crediting to AA. H earns 100%. Meanwhile, when crediting to LY you'll probably get 100% even on G. I would still credit everything to AA because you will not have what to do with so few Matmid miles, besides if you plan on flying a lot with LY on cheap fare classes that's a different story.

Maybe credit to LY where you will always get 100% and eventually you'll accumulate enough miles for a reward.

Airline: Emirates
From: JFK
To: BOM with stop in DXB
Fare Class booked in: Economy L

Online on Emirates it says I'd only get 7,000 Tier points.
The actual distance flown using the Mileage Calculator (http://www.webflyer.com/travel/mileage_calculator/getmileage.php?city=JFK&city=DXB&city=BOM&city=&city=&city=&bonus=0&bonus_use_min=0&class_bonus=0&class_bonus_use_min=0&promo_bonus=0&promo_bonus_use_min=0&min=0&min_type=m&ticket_price=0) is 8,030 each way (16,060 RT).
From what I've seen on online, it seems like Alaska might be the best option, even though it only gets 50% miles.

Does that mean I'm only getting 3,500 miles for the flights if I credit to Alaska?
Are there better options?

Class is N. On Flying Blue I'll get 25%. Which is a little over 3K miles.
On Aeroflot, I'll get 75%. But something tells me 3K FB will be a lot more valuable than 9K Aeroflot.

KE is probably more valuable than  FB, however, since it's only a small amount, and the chance of me redeeming FB is much greater than redeeming KE, for me, FB is probably the way to go.

Don't know about the details. But for infrequent flight, chances are, that wherever you credit them you won't have what to do with them.
Unless you credit it to a plan than you could earn more on a CC or something.

I recently took a turkish flight Tlv-jfk and put in my ua mileage plus number. I did not get any miles at all for that flight for being in a class that doesn't get any ua miles (post devaluation). Is there any way that I can get turkish to credit the miles to a different star alliance account of mine?

I just want to note that this thread is completely irrelevant for most cases since if you're a non frequent flyer than you should try to have the least miles account as possible (max 3 for each alliance. But I'd advise you to stick with one alliance and one account) because even if you earn an extra hundred or thousand miles from one flight it won't help you since you virtually can't do anything with 5k miles. And if you're a frequent flyer with enough flight to justify a few accounts than you probably know where to credit them.... Just saying.

Need advice on where to credit Cathay Pacific paid I class ticket for NYC-HKG-NYC.

the way i see it, there are really 2 options:
 1. i'm an Alaska MVP gold member, (via status match) so crediting to Alaska, would get me about 40K AS miles?
 2. crediting to AA, but seems worthwhile only if it can be combined with a AA Plat challenge?
     * is the challenge still being offered?
     * do Cathay flights qualify for the challenge?

I'm leaning towards crediting to AS, but was hoping to get confirmation on the above, or advice if there are other options that i have overlooked?

many thanks

I hear that. I guess the take away is that you need something in writing to make sure you get it which is not the best spot to be in right now. Ask if they plan on fixing that or if they plan on just not crediting N. Please let us know.

From your chart both are 100% to Krisflyer so whichever is cheaper/available I suppose.

After calling UA a couple times the unanimous opinion is that you cannot upgrade with miles to another economy fare, just business. They won't charge you a change fee to buy a higher fare class, but I'm not paying $486/person for a measly 2422 SQ miles.

I just called cause I was curios myself and she looked at the chart with me and told me that the miles listed there are to upgrade to business/first. She said you can't use miles to upgrade within economy to a different fare but did say that for a change fee ($200) they can change the fare class within economy no questions asked.

I guess its YMMV and DROPR in one.

My brother is booked on KLM from TLV to NYC rt where should I credit the miles to?
The TLV to AMS he booked on L
And the AMS to NYC he is booked on V

The L leg looks like you wont get more then 50% for. Prob best choices: DL or AS.

The V leg won't get you more then 25% with DL or AS like most other options. Only options offering more then that for V are CI and CZ.

Wiki has a link to a website where you can check for yourself. Depends on Fare class but in general seems like AC is a good option.

VS for class O isn't showing on http://www.wheretocredit.com/virgin-atlantic/o, so I assumed it isn't eligible, but perhaps it really earns 100% VS like does regular economy.  I guess you can ask them about it.

Trying to help out a friend here. He rarely flies, so my goal is not necessarily the most or the best miles, rather something that he could actually use as-is without needing to accrue any more miles.

UA would give him 5x, meaning 2x 6124 and 2x 5428 - all utterly useless. I'm thinking SQ, which would give him something more useful such as EWR-LAX in J.

Anyone have a better idea?

From what I've found online,

DL gives 5 miles per $ (of fare and taxes, not fees), but even at max it's only 400 miles.
AS gives 25% of miles flown, but with a 500 mile minimum.

Is this accurate? And assuming the AS minimum is per direction, I should get 1,000 miles for this, right?

A freind flies a significant amount - mainly from the UK to the USA. All paid economy flights. Until now he accumulated miles (and status) on AA which was perfect, as they were used mainly for UK-US economy redemptions.

However, now that BA flights no longer earn full miles on AA, what should he do?

In the next 18 months he will most likely fly on the following economy round trips:

LHR - JFK X 4

LHR - ORD X 1

LHR - YYZ X 1

JFK - Chile X 1

LHR - Hong Kong - Australia - LHR X 1

He can try and do all of those on OneWorld members, but won't be able to do all of them on a single airline.

Earning BA Avios doesn't seem like the best option, because of their high YQ. He does not fly domesticly in the USA cery much to make that worth it.

What's his best option? Continue earning with AA and make as many of those trips as possible on AA? Posting to a different OW partner?

ETA: what sort of earning rates do LAN give for partners?

I know this is the wrong thread but although I don't intend on selling my miles but I have no specific plans for them so the are worth to me the same as the market value. Now that 4.5k awards were abolished for US routes, are BA miles still worth more than AA miles?
Market value was always higher for AA.

Should he:
1) post the miles to Turkish and Korean family accounts and so going forward whenever he or a family member flies on Skyteam / Star Alliance they contribute to that one account?
2) Their award redemption charts + YQ make it not worth much and better post direct to AC and DL?
3) Other?

DW was on a cancelled AF flight from TLV-JFK (because of the strikes) on an award ticket in J. She was rebooked on Air Canada (El Al and Delta were full) via Toronto on a--what I assume--full fare J ticket.

She only had a ticket number, not a PNR on the boarding pass, so I was unable to add a UA FFN online. She added it at the gate... This morning, I was looking at my spreadsheet and realized I gave her MY UA FFN.

Likelihood it'll still post, or is there anything I can do? Call AC?

Birthright or not birthright every ticket is booked into a fare-class and each fare class has earning rates ranging from 0 to 300% depending on the airline. Just check the fare-class and work from there.

It's false. I flew LX with birthright last year, and while it's definitely a very restricted fare class, and apparently a specially negotiated fare, it does still earn. See photo below with my account activity.

As a plat, DL will give me ~5k, while AS ~2.8k. Considering this will be my only flight under this DL FFN, I'm leaning towards AS, as 5k DL sitting in an abandoned account won't do me any good.

Here's my question: the flight wasn't booked from the DL account; the DL FFN was added later. If I now put in my AS number instead, will the plat benefits disappear, or the PNR will still show as a plat account?

Or is all this not worth it and just credit to DL...

Chase, I see only ability to transfer to spouse, not kids. So then I will have about 10k SQ points in kids accounts, not sure what I could do with them. I think minimum for one way in US is 12.5 k. Any thoughts?
You can transfer Amex to them, just add them as an authorized user.

EK F class
Trying to figure out if it pays to "purchase ticket" thru amex travel with 50% points back + the mileage earned from the "revenue ticket"

I found that this thread is really good for the same info that wheretocredit gives you. Once you have that information, there isn't much help DDFers can give. It really depends on your personal flight habits.

I believe it's fare class "p".
I don't know what price my host paid, but it was either $2800 or $4500. I'm sure it was not purchased through UA.

Looks to me like the best option would be credit to UA, for 200%, which would net me 25,000 UA. Correct?

does ticket number start with 016? then its UA

It's 014, so that's AC.
That means 200% * miles flown = 25,000 UA, right?
Curiously, if it were purchased through UA, it would yield fewer UA miles, because it would have been 5*(price paid), which, at most, would have been 22,000 UA.

I credited mine to AV, and DW to UA. They both earned 100% though interestingly show slightly different distances.

IMHO a decision to credit towards one program or another depends not only on how many miles one earns, but on overall prospects for accumulation and redemption (including past accumulation).

It's Matmid (and possibly South African and Qantas - I know they can redeem on ELAL, not sure about earning).

Based on this (http://www.wheretocredit.com/united-airlines/p) seems like AC will give you 150% flown (http://www.gcmap.com/dist?P=man-ewr%0D%0A&DU=mi&DM=&SG=&SU=mph), and while TAP might give you 200%, what else are you going to accumulate and use there?

Flying Aeroflot in class E. Total of 12k miles.
Aeroflot gives 75%, DL gives 50% and FB gives 25%.
For now I only have an account with DL unfortunately with 21k miles. Which is best to earn with.

No one can answer your without knowing which class your ticket is booked in. To get the answer you'll need to find that out. If you can't find it on your res. call the airline and they should be able to tell you. Once you have that check out the link in the wiki.

Called the airline, they told me it's fare class O.
It looks to me like the best option would be Alaskan because it gives 100 percent, whereas AA would only give 25%. The only thing is that I rarely use Alaskan so I would have to find out their expiration policy.

From this trip you'll have enough to book a free ticket, so it's already better than AA

Correct. It's about figuring out which milage program will give you the most for your flight. Obviously, you can only credit to  select programs depending on who you fly.

If you plan on flying PS again, you can credit the flights to PS where you'll get just above 10K miles (including a 1K birthday bonus but it doesn't have to match with your DOB...) And that is enough for an upgrade from most fare classes to Premium Economy between JFK-KBP.
You can also credit to Flying Blue where you'll earn about 8K miles.

You have to PUTPAC to add a FFN (obviously it won't work for the segments you already flew, you'll have to claim retroactively).
They don't have E+, they have a seperate Premium cabin that won't show on the seat map if you have an Economy ticket.

Newbie here and I have read a bunch of this thread, but could use some help.

I am looking to book NYC-SIN on Korean Air in Prestige Class (R fare booking class).

Should I book this via Delta.com or is it better to book via Korean Air and credit to Delta? I am a Delta Gold Medallion and looked at wheretocredit.com but I dont really understand the difference. Also, can I earn MQMs this way or is this only about the redeemable miles?

Thanks!

You can purchase it at either place, but IMO credit to Delta for the following reasons:
-You will get 200% miles
-You will earn an additional 60% miles due to status
-You will obtain MQM & 40% MQD

The only downside is that you'll end up with Skymiles which are not as valuable, but have been climbing lately.

Are you trying to get status or miles from another Skyteam partner?

Thanks. Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong, but I want Delta status. This trip will get me to Platinum and a Japan trip later this year will get close to Diamond. I fly Delta all the time for work, but a lot of short hops. Higher status is great. The MQD might be an issue though...

At about 5k I'd be getting about 45k miles if I book via delta. Not sure what I'd get if i book Korean and credit to delta.

I really am new to this - can anyone help me with my analysis? I am flying NYC-SIN via ICN on Korean Air in Business Class (Prestige Class R) and I can book on Korean's site and credit to Delta or book direct on Delta's website.

a) NYC-SIN is 9,529 miles on Great Circle Mapper.
b) I am a Delta Gold Medallion so there is a status bonus
c) The flight costs $5,157

If I book on Korean, I think I would earn:
Miles - 49,550 (9,529 x 2 x 260%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x (100% base + 100% class bonus + 60% status bonus)
MQD - $7,623 (9,529 x 2 x 40%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x partner MQD %
MQM - 28,587 (9,529 x 2 x 150%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x partner MQM %

If I book on Delta.com, they estimate my earning as:
Miles - 40,320
MQD - $5,040
MQM - 29,326

It looks like I would earn more redeemable miles, more MQDs but slightly fewer MQMs if I book on Korean.
Does this analysis look correct? Appreciate any help - I am trying

Can anyone help? I would like to book this and am told there shouldn't be any difference between Delta and Korean on this but that doesnt seem right.
