Ia Orana All !
I am in Bali right now, staying over at the Intercontinental Bali resorts, beautiful hotel, really stunning, service is real good too...
Was wondering on which airline I should put my hotel nights ?
I am a memeber of Asia Miles, Worldperks and Flying Blue...
Thanks very much,

Two things. First, which airline FF program are you most active in, and need most points credited to? Second, you generally get a better return collecting PC points, then converting them in bulk to FF program miles, if that's what you really need.
If you want to earn status in PC, then earning points can make this happen faster than miles. By points you can generally earn enough, with legitimate bonuses, to get elite status after many fewer nights than if you are earning miles and thus getting your status by the required number of nights. [Unless you stay at a lot of IC-branded properties, where you earn a flat number of points and miles, but every night counts towards elite status.]

OP says he is staying at IC...
manureva744 - you will earn 500 points/stay for the programs you have mentioned, so it comes down to the question which program needs these 500pts most (e.g. short for an award, etc).
