Crediting American Flights to Alaska Airlines
Do you know if I can I credit either of the following to Alaska Airlines (I consider Mileage plan miles more valuable than AA miles):
– Flights sold with an American Airlines ticket number with an American Airlines flight number which is a codeshare and actually flown on another airline
– Flight sold with an American Airlines ticket number, but flown on a different carrier (not an AA codeshare)?
This is not clearly stated in the Alaska Airlines website
Prockets, actually if click on the “Details” section, it says pretty clearly:”Flights must fall within the eligible flight number range below, and your flight must be marketed and operated by American Airlines.” Since the flights are not operated by AA, they would not be eligible for MP accrual. However if they are on another partner like BA, it would still work.
