Tnx! If they're able to add BA from LHR it should be included, correct?

It would be 90k, I will try & explain...

2001-4000 miles are 65,000 miles in F.
4001-6000 miles are 90,000 miles in F.

MXP-JFK is 3,995 miles.
LHR-MXP-JFK is 4,578 miles.

The small BA flight pushes the rate up by 25,000 miles.

You are better off booking 4k/4.5k BA miles to MXP & start the JAL booking from MXP

1) From where is this list? KVS? Is this E-Ticketing or bagagge IET?
2) I see MH is missing, is this part of the new rule going on?
3) We are also discussing 2 different bookings vs booked as one E-Ticket. I dont see BA checking the bags through to EK in such a scenerio

1) Sabre, bags, as clearly stated "May check baggage to".
2) What "new rule" do you speak of?
3) Makes no difference, if they interline, they can check the bags through.
