Have been a reader of you blog for many years now, your doing a great job!
I have been an executive platinum for many years now and I am looking to swap over to Mileage plan.
I purchase a lot discounted business class tickets from Asia to South America and America and my tickets consist of several segments.
I would like to know if I purchase a ticket on AA or Latam ticket stock and part of my ticket is on an AA or LA code share flight operated by AA/LA/BA/CX/JL code share flight. Am i still eligible for mileage accrual and elite qualifying miles on the mileage plan program?
It’s may depend on what fare class you’re in. You can check wheretocredit.com to see how much you’d earn for those code shares. Also look at the Alaska site for more details on which flights/partners earn mileage: [URL]https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/how-to-earn-miles/airline-partners[/URL]
Codeshares are kind of a gray area when crediting to AS. The best idea would be to keep all your boarding passes and manually request credit from AS after you fly.
Additionally, AA domestic flights dont earn anything on AS unless you’re ticketed with an AS codeshare flight number. AA international flights do earn mileage on AS.
