Are there any DL partners who allow pooling multiple family members flights into the same account?
With star alliance, I recall that Turkish allow it. Any other? Expiration?

S/o who flies primarily on Oneworld and only has AA miles (doesn't live in US and no CCs etc.). Now has a (economy) trip booked on DL and another on Air Canada, both flying together with a child.
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?

I'm flying on AA G And N class. It's a 2002 mile trip and AA gives 100% miles.
My other option is to credit to BA and get 2002 miles and 20 tier points to top me up to silver status.

What's BA silver status worth?

I hope I was clear. Let me know if I'm not.

According to the website in the wiki you'd only get 25% with BA.

True point. Although the 25% would still get me beyond the silver status.

What's the silver status worth?

ETA: It's bronze status I'm talking about.

Basically are there any benefits I get when flying on partner airlines when I have BA bronze status?

DL booking class V JFK-TLV

FlyingBlue 25%
AS 50%
AZ 50%
GOL 50%
DL - who knows?

Redemptions are mainly NYC-TLV (both Y and J), possibly Down Under - TLV, or resale value.

What's the best option?

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?

TK W class officially doesn't earn anything.
Any glitches?

Would it be worth it to upgrade your ticket to the next earnable class?

I just advised a friend who is going on Birthright with LX to credit his miles to UA, he tell me that Birthright does not allow to for people to have their miles credited to their accounts, is this a joke or something? I doubt Birthright uses some kind of promotional deals with with airlines? maybe with LY?.

I don't know what birthright does, but I do know that some LX discounted fares credit 0 to UA, so it's worth checking the booking class.
