Points on United's Regional Partners?

I'm looking at a United YYZ-IAD-JFK flight (United 3646 & United 5714) and it says these two flights are operated by some regional airlines. Would I get *A points credited to my A3 (Aegean Air) account given that United is a *A partner?

YYZ-IAD (UNITED 3646 operated by /GOJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS)
IAD-JFK ( UNITED 5714 operated by /EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXP )

Sorry to resurrect an old thread....

I'm currently looking at some EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS flights booked under UA codes. Has anybody credited these to Miles&Bonus recently?

Since you seem to like CPR , there is another thread of 3-4 years ago, hidden somewhere in the A3 forum, that includes a post listing the numbers of UA flights that are "creditable". I guess it would take a bit of searching, but it could be worth it.

I have credited 7 of these type flights (United Express) to my Miles&Bonus account over the past 18 months with no problems.

Unfortunately this does not answer the question. In that previous thread I mentioned there were a number of flights that did not credit: I forget the reason but my feeling is that codeshares on non bona fide UA companies (i.e. partners XXX) would not credit M+B miles, while UA flights operated by partner XXX would. The flight numbers, as listed in that post/thread would tell you what to expect. In your case (similarly to my own experience) you were just lucky to have flown creditable flights.

Usually, they credit fine. I've had one that didn't, and A3 kept refusing (SMF-SFO, but that wasn't expressjet). Aeroplan had the same problem, but fixed it after intervention from Air Canada. A3 refused to fix it and I lost 500 miles.

I suspect the problem was a database error at UA.
