ORD-FRA
FRA-TLV   Lufthansa L class


Anyone? Is UA my best bet?
UA and AC seem to give 50% as per wheretocredit.com

AC
BOS-YYZ-TLV
TLV-YYZ-BOS
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
or A3 will also get you 200%

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.

Airline: Delta
From: JFK
To: TLV
Fare Class booked in: V (these were purchased through Amex pay with points and the 50% rebate)

I think Virgin is probably my best option but wanted to get other opinions. Thanks.

CLE-EWR-TLV, CLE-EWR is booked into W but EWR-TLV got upgraded to PN
TLV-EWR-CLE, booked into W

I'm assuming I should still stick with SQ?

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).

With ELAL you don't have that many options.

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

Maybe this is a better place to ask this: How can I credit miles flown on TK, to a different program (M&M), after the flight? Thanks.

Open a M&M account, hit the option "Mileage request" and follow the prompts.
