thanks in advance!
Definitely against the rules of every frequent flyer program that exists, and for good reason. Otherwise, what's to stop me or anyone else from signing up for memberships on all *A carriers, and earning points for 16, or however many it is now, FF programs.

However, some airlines, UA at least I know for sure, allows you to list two numbers on a reservation, with one as the "earning" ff #, and the other as a reference. This would be beneficial in cases, where, for example, you want to be able to use the status benefits you have earned in one program (the reference) while earning with the other.
