It may depend on the FF program, but having worked for an airline, no. The FFnumber isn't assigned for the purchase, it's for when the person associated with the FF number travels. Names are checked. If you try and assign it to your wife for usage, it will not be permited. However, you can (At least with Qantas, for example) both get an account (free). ...

Egged's English site isn't pretty, but contains the prices. Choose origin and destination, search, then click "trip summary" to see the price. However, Egged is not the only inter-city bus operator in Israel. Other operators, like Kavim and Metropolin have even worse sites, and in Hebrew only. Paying small sums in credit is uncommon in Israel, often cards (...

In general, you are awarded frequent flyer miles or points for a flight after all stages of the flight have completed, and if you have been aboard for all stages of the flight. For our purposes here I am defining "flight" as a scheduled trip that has been assigned a single flight number. You can expect this regardless of how many total flights are in your ...

You can't double dip. Your booking is always associated with a single frequent flyer account, regardless which carrier flies, markets, books or operates it. You can easily change it anytime before the flight typically until check in, but there can be only one at a time Benefits get credited after completion of the flight depending on what frequent flyer is ...

With an upgraded ticket on a KLM flight you won't get the additional Miles or XP award points that a normal business class ticket would earn you. You only get the business class seat and the associated business-class services, like the priority check-in, additional luggage (and probably lounge access where available). https://www.klm.com/travel/aw_en/...

Yes, the AA page on elite status says: Earn EQMs, EQSs and EQDs during the calendar year to qualify (bold mine) Most frequent flyer programs are the same -- you have to fly a lot of miles during the year, every year. Air Canada's top tier requires 100k status miles. Some airlines have a lifetime award if you pass a million or more status miles, but that ...

Most frequent flyer programs only allow you to credit mileage to the account of the person flying. Inputting the same frequent flyer number for two different passengers wouldn’t work, because the name on the account has to match the name on the ticket. Most likely, the miles simply wouldn’t be credited, if the number’s even accepted at all. (I suppose it ...

Beware of Fare-Dependent Frequent Traveller Benefits Be sure to check that the Miles & More partner airline allows you to use Frequent Traveller benefits on the flight class and ticket fare you have purchased. See for example Brussels Airlines, which has a fare-dependent benefit scheme for Frequent Traveller status: This is part of the Miles & More ...

Somewhat surprisingly, the answer is no: one guest is OK, but additional kids are not. From customer service: Please be advised that you only have one guest allowance included when you access our lounges using your [Krisflyer Gold] membership card. However, you can purchase 2 Single Entry passes to the lounge for your 2 children for $65 (per person). It ...

In general, miles are only credited to your account after you have actually flown on the flight. This is the case for all the airlines I know of, and I have personally experienced this on United, American and Delta. If it were otherwise, there would be an obvious loophole: you book a massive itinerary of (refundable) flights for six months from now, ...

In general, yes: you still earn miles for trips you fly regardless of who purchased the ticket. There are many frequent flyer programs around the world, each with fairly complex rules, so you'd have to check the rules of your specific program to know what caveats apply. One thing that has changed a bit is that more airlines are selling their cheapest ...

The Flying Blue website is a mess, but there's a section which lists all partners, including airlines and how things work with them in terms of XP and miles accrual and redemption. In the case of Delta: WITH DELTA AIR LINES, YOU CAN: Earn Miles Gain XP on eligible flights Earn Elite bonus Miles Spend Miles Extend the overall validity of ...

If that's right all the Exec Platinum members are spending $15,000 + flying 100000 EQM's every year to retain their status? Yes. The clocks resets on Jan 1 every year and you need to start accumulating from scratch every year. You maintain the top status you reached in 2019 for all of 2020, but the accrual starts at 0 on 1/1/2020. There are no carryovers.

The Asiana frequent flyer membership guide says on page 31: When a member boards a codeshare flight, the member earns miles according to the fare and the class of the ticket purchased and the mileage program of the airline operating the flight.

No, your status will not change. Elite status is granted for earning miles, and is not affected by redeeming them.

Within OneWorld, it is normally the marketing carrier that is relevant when it comes to mileage earning - but that only applies if the flight is actually operated by a OneWorld carrier - which in this case it is not (Lufthansa is Star Alliance). Within Star Alliance, it is the operating carrier that is relevant. For a Cathay Pacific flight operated by ...

Yes, you can use Qantas points to book reward tickets on partner airlines, British Airways among them. The BA partnership offers both Classic Flight Rewards, where you use points to cover the entire fare, and Points Plus Pay, where you use points to get a discounted fare. This is covered in the "Use Points" section of the QFF website. As with all frequent ...

I spoke to KLM directly, and after a few back-and-forth messages, received this: If the flights are marketed by KLM or Air France you are able to earn Miles and XP for these flights indeed. In this example if the flights are marketed by Virgin Atlantic and operated by KLM or Air France, you would not be able to earn Miles or XP. Please check ...

Official site says : Gain XP on eligible flights with Air France, KLM, Aircalin, Kenya Airways, TAROM, SkyTeam, or other airline partners except Transavia. The number of XP you gain is based on your flight type and cabin. For example, fly from Frankfurt to New York via Amsterdam or Paris in Economy Cabin = 15 XP (Frankfurt to Amsterdam or ...

The Global Distribution Systems are very complex animals. Wikipedia has an example for what you are doing here. You will get a PNR from Booking.com which contains the entire itin (flights, hotels, cars, everything) and there will be a VN PNR and a CA PNR. If the Booking.com email doesn't contain them (I do not know because I never use them for booking ...

There are several ways to go about this. You can inform the airline in advance that you intend to terminate at point D. By doing this, however, they may demand that you modify your ticket to terminate at D. This in turn may well result in a higher fare and/or a change fee, strange as it sounds; such is commercial aviation. You can simply no-show at point D. ...

The miles you earn when flying a Star Alliance airline and crediting to a different Star Alliance airline will depend on two factors - the "fare class" that your ticket is booked into, and the earning on the airline you credit to for that fare class. The earning rates on the airline you book with (in this case, the '10%'/'50%'/etc listed on that site) do ...

For tracking your points, the service you're looking for is AwardWallet (no endorsement). It's apparently the only service that is able to display the point balance of various difference awards accounts automatically. Notably, it doesn't support a few major services, like United MileagePlus, but it does support Emirates, and it's the closest I think you'll ...

No. One cannot upgrade using the AA miles on Qatar Airways to the next class. You can upgrade using Q miles if you have any. I found it in person when I took the flight two days ago.

I spoke with Delta and they confirmed that it is impossible to book some flights as award flights, even though those flights are available with other SkyTeam award booking systems. Apparently SIN-XMN is one of these flights. Likely all Xiamen Air international flights are non-bookable using Delta SkyMiles, even though Xiamen domestic flights within China ...

I managed to get a helpful answer from British Airways’ Twitter after a little bit of back and forth: [J]ust found something which confirms what I suspected! There are no circumstances in which you can earn Avios or tier points on a codeshare flight not operated by a oneworld airline. For example, a Cathay Pacific coded flight operated by Air New Zealand. ...

Airlines generally don't like this, because it's often used for Hidden City Ticketing, in which you buy a ticket A-B-C intending to only go to B, because it's cheaper than the fare for A-B. The answers to this question cover the potential issues, but in short: It's probably fine as a one-off. Be aware that the airline is obliged to get you to A, not D, so ...
