If I book an award ticket on AA using Avios do I get BIS miles and/or elite-qualifying miles?

    Hey Lucky,

    Sorry for this fairly basic question, but I’ve looked and can’t confirm it. If I book an award ticket on AA using Avios do I get BIS miles and/or elite-qualifying miles for the trip or does AA “know” that it’s an award ticket and give me nothing?

    Thank you!

    @ Heidi — Award tickets and revenue tickets have different fare codes, so you won’t earn miles.
