I dont think fare class really matters for LY tickets as far as matmid earning goes

Where is it best to credit AlItalia business or Y+ TLV-JFK?

My next flight would most likely be TLV-Europe, so perhaps EY which has good redemptions with Brussels?

Careful though, Alamo charges you a few cents per day in order to get those miles.

I see different rules by airlines how far back can one request missing miles (e.g. Lufthansa 6 month. untied 12 month) 
Is there any info anywhere for all airlines/programs?
Also dose that apply only if a frequent flyer account (of which I want to credit to) was open at time of travel?

Booked a flight on AF, ORD-CDG-TLV in V (ORD-CDG legs) and L, which look to get 25% and 50% respectively.  Since they get the same percentage, I was thinking to credit it to AS since those miles would be more valuable to me.  AF "rebooked" me on a new flight outbound ORD-CDG basically 30 minutes earlier and now my ticket for that flight says Y class, which should get 100% accrual.  Just curious if this happened to anyone before and they got the higher amount of miles.

 Nice! Did they change the whole flight to the new booking category or just one leg they rebooked?

Was a bit different scenario.

I was booked VA SYD-LAX V, Discount economy (the $151 glitch)
They cancelled my flight and rebooked me VA SYD-BNE-LAX.
I waited two weeks until only Y was left and then called and demanded to be put on a Non-stop flight.
They booked me on DL-SYD-LAX Y class

I'll be taking several BA flights next month - outbound EWR-LHR O and inbound FAO-LGW S / LGW-JFK O on one reservation, and LGW-OPO O on a separate reservation. Although I have a decent BA Avios balance, this is my first time flying BA. Suggestions on where to credit my miles? I should probably credit something to Iberia to activate my Iberia Avios account, but what about the rest?

Not even the short LGW-OPO run to Iberia, for activation purposes?

AS are worth much more, transfer 1k MR to activate your Iberia account.

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"
