Where to credit miles?
Now that I have booked a RT trip in F Class on LH and LX, where should I credit the miles? If I credit them to my MileagePlus account, do I receive 300%? I believe I will accrue almost 40k miles on this trip from SFO to LHR. Do I need to open a Miles & More account? I see plenty of European trips in the future. Please help.
I booked one of the recent cheap AF La Premiere fares roundtrip from the West Coast and have the same question–should I credit to FlyingBlue, Skymiles, or someplace else? Fares booked into F, and it looks like both FlyingBlue and Skymiles will give 300% if I’m not mistaken. I don’t have status in either program.
Depends where you want to build your balance. UA is a good choice since you can get credit cards that transfer points to UA miles.

And I will still get the 300% accrual?
You’ll need to know which airline issued the ticket and the fare class youre in before knowing for sure what you will accrue.
Once you have that information, wheretocredit.com is generally a good place to see how many miles you’ll get for each program.
M&M is good if you want to use their miles to get LH F access before 2 weeks out. But they do impose fuel surcharges.
