M&M will only give you 100%, UA will give you 150%.

Great thank you. My return is on UA. I assume that it only makes sense to credit that to UA as well?

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 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?

Planning on taking a couple of these 1-way flights within Thailand. I did a little research and it seems I might be able to get miles on JAL? Any other better options? Thnx.

Where could I credit Aeorflot flights? (TLV-SVO-JFK RT)
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.

Any other options?

KE will give 50%. Can't see how Flying Blue is worth double Korean. Any other options?

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.
Thanks though.

For someone who flies infrequently, which airline would it be best to credit El Al flights to? Qantas, South African, AeroMexico or El Al? 
Can El Al flights be credited to any of these partner airlines after the fact?

thx

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.
