Hey Ben – So, this is a question about crediting cheap Star Alliance fares: basically I booked LH ATH-MUC-TXL in T, and OS TXL-VIE-ATH in S. Normally I would credit these in A3, but both of these classes get zero miles. Same with UA. So far as I see, my options to get at least some miles in programs where I could feasibly redeem them (after transferring in other currencies) seem to be Miles & More, Aeroplan and Krisflyer… I have zero balances in all three of these programs… I do intend to make an SQ booking in the reasonably near future, but I think the T class tickets would earn no miles. Miles & More would earn me some miles, but any miles I credit there tend to expire (damn three-year rolling periods!) Am I missing a good option here?
@ Stratos — Unfortunately not. Miles & More might be the only option here, though you might not end up being able to efficiently use them. 🙁
