Would anyone know if i'll get 35% back on a round trip ticket that has 1 flight my preferred airline and one flight another airline (economy fare). For example delta (preferred airline) going and Alitalia  returning

I had the same thing. Then after a month I got the 50% points back even though I ended up paying cash not points. I had the points for two months after which they took it back.

It only took a day for them to clawback by me. But it was over 140k of points, so maybe it goes to a separate que to review...

If your selected airline is the issuing carrier you'll receive the rebate.

You can check this easily by looking at the ticket num.

What steps do I need to follow to double dip and get 5x via personal plat + 35% rebate via biz plat? Would this work?

1. Log into amex travel using my personal plat login
2. Make J booking
3. Select option at checkout to pay in full with points

Or do I

1. Start the process with my biz plat login
2. select the option to pay with cc
3. use personal plat for payment
4. call Amex Travel to have them process payment with points instead

So, to confirm
If i select pay with points using my PP and BP which is on account is selected that airline, I will automatically get the 35% points (plus the times 5)
And how long will it take?
Until now I have been paying with cash on BP and then calling up the next daY to apply the points and getting automatic 35% on the phone
