paid BD Business I-Class and M&M

I would like to know if I will get miles for a paid British Midland (BD operated too)
flight VIE-LHR-VIE in I-Class Business Class.This Class is not mentioned on the M&M webpage.
It is not an award class, I booked it in a BD sale.
Anybody taken an I-Class flight with BD and got correct miles (2000+ Status Bonus) ?
Another question, what to expect on an afternoon flight with BD LHR-VIE in Business Class, espec. catering ; in comparison to BA Afternoon Tea or on OS ?

kind regards,

Ettrich

hm, interesting.
I'd assume you get the full C class miles when crediting to M&M (2500 miles incl exec bonus).

Many Thanks to DownUnderFlyer for the conclusive link, so good news indeed.

I bought couple of times a BD ticket from YYZ to RUH via LHR in business class I fare bucket and I always got the full business class mileage for that trip.

Some how BD system can diffrentiate between the award tickets booked in I class and revenue tickets booked also in the same class I class
