LGA-MAD-LGA-YYZ - If I cancel last segment will I collect A3 miles I've flown?

I booked flights with Air Canada/United in K Class. If I call on the 15th after I land to LGA, to cancel the last segment (LGA-YYZ) will I still collect A3 miles on the flights flown? Thanks so much for your help.

My routing is:
LGA-IAD -MAD - SEPT 30TH
MAD - YYZ - OCT 15H
YYZ - LGA - OCT 16T

Note: I live in YYZ so I don't need YYZ - LGA (last segment). I added that because it made the rate super cheap.

There is no LGA-MAD (or return) service. What is your exact routing?

You collect miles for each sector flown.

This is how most (all?) FFPs work - each individual flight is considered an individual unit, and they each post individually.

Never mind. Incorrect assumption on my part

Sometimes, if you don't cancel, you even get miles for the sectors that you haven't flown!

Are you sure you want to cancel? Why not just no-show?

It does not matter. One can wait a long time for the MAD departure from LGA.

If you just cancel the last leg there's a nonzero probability that UA will recalculate the fare.
​​​​​So no-show, which has the same risk, probably is the better option.

Anyway, you will earn what you've flown.

Maybe what the OP is asking is that, since UA have to 'send' the miles to A3 before they'll credit, and they're getting pretty hot on 'hidden-city' ticketing, could UA refuse to send the miles in this case? I think that's a real possibility actually. It would worry me too.

EDIT: OK so it would be AC in this case, but the same argument applies. I guess it depends how much the system is automated and how closely they are checking these situation.

Just no show for the flight. Do not do this regularly and it is not an issue.

Bear in mind that if the flight is eventually cancelled or substantially delayed, you are due a refund for that segment on request. Thus, check in online as well.
