UA Transatlantic Basic Economy Fares

As United continues to expand their Basic Economy offering, I was wondering how it works for the transatlantic routes. US Domestic UA BE tickets are coded N and therefore get no tier mile credit for M&B, but for transatlantic flights, they are still coded as their regular fares. I'm looking at a LAX-LHR ticket which is BE but coded as a K-fare, so would I still earn 50% tier miles per M&B chart or will the BE override the fare class and I won't get any tier miles? Anybody have experience with this yet?

FYI, I flew UA from SFO to HNL and back in December and the booking class for basic economy was G (50% as per A3 earning chart)

Thanks, that's what I thought.
