Airline: AA
From: LAX
To: JFK (RT)
Fare Class booked in: Business "I"

I'm thinking BA unless anyone else has a better idea.

Also- Theres 4 pax. Any partner that I can credit all miles to one account? Or each need to credit each pax to seperate FF account?

QF you can transfer points between "family" accounts.

The question is if you want QF points.

The person who this is for barely knows what to do with BA miles.

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

UA
LAX-PHL
Most flights are in N class, one is in W, one is in G.

I was thinking SQ, but while this document says SQ will credit 100% of the miles flown for G and W tickets, it doesn't mention N.

Any ideas?

Not sure if helpful but it seems that some ppl in the FT family had experiences along those lines and didn't get credited and believe it is WAD.

Thanks! It'd be more helpful if I wanted M&S, not SQ. I guess I can call SQ, but nothing they say over the phone will make much of a difference if it's not in writing somewhere.
