We have to do our flights from Frankfurt to somewhere in Greece, (no Heraklion or Thessaloniki) on April 10th. Any suggestions would be great. We will stay only 4 days and will depart Greece April 14 for Spain.

e.g. Aktion, Chania, Chios, Corfou, Ioannina, Kefalonia, Mytilini, Rhodes, Zakynthos...

I listed, alphabetically, destinations which offer beautiful places for hiking/excursions and some culture (museums, etc.). There are certainly many more, though.

PS Aktion: Nothing there, but very, very close to Lefkada and a series of lesser Ionian islands as well as Preveza and Nikopolis. For history buffs: The site of the battle of Actium where Cleopatra and Marc Antonius were beaten by Octavian, i.e. for Hollywood fans, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton and Roddy McDowall

Unless anything has changed recently you'll have no problem. I've taken several Helvetic flights in the past (4 or 5 years ago on the old Fokker 100s) and they credit just like any LX flight. The key is in the flight numbers - they are "normal sequence" LX numbers

TAP<-->A3 Status Miles Equivalency?

Was wondering IF there's any difference in earning A3 status miles when flying another Star Alliance airline, particularly TAP, and crediting to M+B??

Where I'm going with this question is that if I fly A3 and would earn 900 status AND award miles, if I flew the same distance on TAP (credited to A3), would I earn the same status miles?

Thanks for whatever you can tell me!

If you fly TAP or any Star airline in a booking class that earns 900 miles on A3, you will receive 900 award miles and 900 tier miles.

For A3 and OA flights, when you have A3 status you will also get extra award miles based on your status, but no extra tier miles.

Of course there are tons of differences!
https://en.aegeanair.com/milesandbon...rlines/aegean/
(refer to "how to earn" - "international")
Compare with
https://en.aegeanair.com/milesandbon.../airlines/tap/
So unless you are comparing the exact fares and booking classes I've marked in the following screenshots, you won't get the same amount of miles, regardless if the distance flown is exactly the same.

Thanks very much! I could NOT find that info but now have it. It might not matter much for short trips, but SFO-LIS return is a bigger earner I didnt want to lose on. Cheers!!

Hello I'm sure the answer is somewhere in one of the threads/forums but I still couldn't find the proper answer for A3 accrual miles with *alliance partners and codesharing.

Ex: flying Air Canada metal on a UA ticket and flight number.

Do I get AC P mileage: 200% or UA P mileage: 100%

I remember reading that *Alliance rules would be you earn the mileage of the airlines (metal) you're flying with rather than the flight number (of another airlines), but I couldn't find anything about it on A3 Miles+Bonus T&C.

Thanks in advance.

The bold part is already correct (you probably can't find anything because it's assumed ​​​​​​, though perhaps this is mentioned somewhere, but it's not really important to find it out now, since we already know what's the answer). I would however advise you to be cautious about such bookings and what they'll credit to Aegean. Of course business class bookings are "safer" (even if retro-crediting is needed, in case of an error), but with many star alliance airlines, their own booking class (letter) in economy class will get "translated" to (or simply get sent to Aegean as) a completely different booking class, which will then credit according to Aegean's earning table for that airline. This is an issue with no fail-proof answer afaik, according to the comments I've been reading here on FT on the past 3-4 years...
