This is on UA/LH, not US. Mods alerted to fix title. LH fares also book in to K, which does not earn on US/UA.

Connections via Austrian (VIE) are only $20 more.

you can go transatlantic via ham for example, which is operated by united and should earn 100% miles on united.

Thread title amended to note UA and if OP can confirm a US RT we can include it as well.

Soooo. I booked EWR-ZRH-DUS-VIE-JFK on United, Swiss, Lufthansa and Austrian all in K. Do I get ANY Premiere qualifying miles on the non-UA carriers?

Hey now! Don't talk about us as if we can't hear you!

Yeah, if you have/want to go, it's a great fare.

I always have the "summer European travel conundrum" because it's almost never worth buying a summer coach ticket to Europe (especially lately) , and it's never worth redeeming mileage for "just Europe" from the East Coast. Like with UA, you can book a coach ticket to Asia -- and stop in Europe -- for 65,000 miles. For 60,000 you only get Europe.

Alas, $610 isn't enough of a bargain for me either, even though it's way cheaper than the average summer European fare.

The way I'm solving this problem is redeeming 30,000 Avios miles to fly BOS-DUB, but that's obviously not for everyone.

Are you flying Aer Lingus? I thought that route was 25k Avois RT in Economy or 50k RT in business, since it comes in at 2993 miles each way.

beware that any flights on LH will be in K - meaning - it doesnt earn mileage.
