Qualiflyer - LX: LHR-EZE decision time looms - which FFP?
... if any.
Has anybody flown since 1.1.03 and earned miles? We are travelling soon and I would value the latest news.
New STC t+c's say no mileage on DMFUK fare basis. Is this the case?
Will we earn LX e-checkin bonuses?
Will AA award miles on these tickets? Or QF?Or ... ?
Thanks very much for advice.

Just flew last weekend LHR-EZE on the DMFUK fare. I credited the miles to AA and they posted within two days. EZE was great as usual. LX was good too but hose MD-11's are really getting tired. On the return from EZE the lights in the toilets didn't work so it was quite challenging to use them. Then when we got to GRU we had a nice 5 hour delay while they tried to fix it. The previous trip resulted in an 11 hour delay.
Can't wait for them to get the A-340s. But will they have another DMFUK fare so we can check those new planes out.

Too bad the miles don't count as base miles in the AA program. And AA only gives you 25% class bonus for C. I will have the miles for my flight credited to STC. If they refuse, I will credit them to my AA account and move my business...
I spoke to STC.
They told me that miles would post as clubmiles to my STC account. The lady was aware of the DMFUK fare basis. We shall see.
She was less sure whether AA would post my wife's miles but in view of MileTex's experience, this at least should be OK.

A few years ago my cousin flew on a SR MD-11 to BA from Zurich. They were delayed for 12 hours and then just as they were landing in Sao Paulo they were told that the flight would not continue on to BA because of the long delay. That meant spending the night in a hotel and continuing the next day on a local carrier.
