Miles accrual ZRH -> BKK

Hi guys

I was looking at a nice fare, but was wondering about the miles accrual. I have found the following:

dinsdag 9 april 2019Swiss 4300 Economy (T) Boeing 777-300ER
Operated by Thai Airways
(Duur van de stop: 02:20)
Vertrek: 13:30 Zürich (Zurich - ZRH), Zwitserland
Aankomst: 05:30 Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi - BKK), Thailand

This flight books in T by Swiss, but is operated by Thai. Do I have to check the miles accrual table for Thai Airways (50%) or Swiss (0%)?
I will also have a connection flight with Bangkok Airways (OW). Can I credit them immediately when checking in, or should I credit them after, since I'm booking with *A?

Thanks for your help!

Unless you find somebody who has that exact eperience it's close to impossible to say. You will get the miles corresponding to the TG fare class the LX T maps to (and certainly not the LX miles), which could be their T or anything else. You can try to find out by calling Swiss. Moreover, Bangkok Airways earns nothing, even if it is owned by TG. Finally, you can obviously try to retro-claim once you know what fare class you actually flew, and then choose appropriately. If you are *G, though, you will not have benefits such as extra luggage, although you could still use the lounges by showing your card.

Programs: SQ LPPS, A3 *G, BA Silver - renewed on only two sectors and no other OW flying, is BA desperate?.

Oooops, mea culpa, I thought OP meant Thai Smile. I should wear my... glasses when reading the posts.
