Am I earning MileagePlan Miles for my EK flight?
Hi guys, so even though the title asks the question, here is why I ask. if you see the image, at the top, it says “miles are not earned with partner frequent flyer numbers” Curious what this means because I’ve never seen this before. I’ve flown with EK few times before and credited to AS. Maybe I haven’t paid attention to it. But for details, I’m flying from LAX to BOM roundtrip via DXB (yes I signed up for the [URL=’https://www.alaskaair.com/www2/Promo/Registration/PromoEntry.aspx?&pid=AS1708′]MileagePlan Miles double mile promotion[/URL] because I have eligible fare code and routes on EK), but still not sure what that message means. And then at the bottom, it says “You can also earn miles with our partner airlines”. Am I missing something here, or do the top and bottom messages contradict each other? Thanks for the help.
My guess is that they mean that you will not earn EK miles with partner FF numbers in your reservation. As long as you have verified you are in an eligible fare class you should be fine.

I would also assume I wouldn’t earn miles with both programs, but if that’s what they are saying, then it’s all good. Thanks for the reply Guarav.
