United lifetime miles (Million Miler) and code shares
Do United code share flights count towards lifetime miles (Million Miler status)? For example, I book a Lufthansa-operated flight under a United code share flight number. Will my lifetime miles increase? I tried reading the Million Miler fine print, but couldn’t find anything. Thanks!

The Million Miler program grants lifetime Premier status to all qualifying members, even if they fly less in the future. [B][I]Lifetime miles are earned based on the flight distance ([URL=’https://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/account/lifetime.aspx#fn_one’]Footnote*[/URL]) of United- and United Express®-operated flights[/I][/B]. Basic Economy tickets do not earn lifetime flight miles.

So it looks like UA codeshare flights wont work 🙁
