Does AA ticket on Jet Airways metal earn full AA miles?

Does AA ticket on Jet Airways metal earn full AA miles?

  1. PM1

    I recently bought a multi-segment ticket via AA (Platinum). One segment was on BA metal and another was on Jet metal, rest were on AA. While I received the appropriate mileage credit for the AA & BA segments, the miles from the segment flown on Jet metal weren’t credited. I raised the issue with AAdvantage and they are looking into it. But the agent and the followup e-mail state that they are researching whether that segment qualifies for AA miles. I’m confused. I thought I would get full AA EQM and mileage credit because the flight was ticketed by AA. Am I right?

    [USER=238]@PM1[/USER] – did your Jet flight have a BA or AA flight number? Or something different?

    Not sure if the Jet flight had a BA or AA number but the ticket was issued by AA.

    Do you mind sharing the routing?

    According to this page [URL][/URL] if you have an AA flight number for the Jet airways leg, you should be earning miles as if it was on AA metal, which is at least 100% base miles and EQMs

    Thanks @MidSouthSkier! My route was ATL-CLT-LHR-BOM-LHR-DFW-ATL.

    Thanks David, that’s what I thought.

    Just make sure you have copies of your itinerary with the AA flight numbers as well as boarding passes in case AA asks for it.
