Mixed cabin mileage earning

How many miles do I earn on YYJ-YVR? Is it going to post as P due to the fare basis, earning 150%? Or will it post as... whatever M posts as, earning 0-115%?

I haven't seen any posts about this since branded fares came into play and the redid the mileage earning logic, so I'm really only looking for people who have experienced this in the past 1-1.5 years.

YYJ-YYC P fare

YYJ-YVR M class, P fare basis
YVR-YYC P class, P fare basis

Thanks.

Bit of a shame that they couldn't do something more reasonable. It's odd that the cheaper Comfort option would have kept me in Y the whole way, but given me an extra 38 AQM.

I flew the following itinerary earlier this year:

YVR-YYC (AC)
YYC-DEN (UA)

014 ticket, Z fare, but YVR-YYC was seated in Y (showed Y fare class on the ticket receipt from Amex Travel). The AC flight credited as 'T', which every AC flight seated in Y since the advent of branded fares has credited as for me regardless of booked fare class. Like every other AC flight I take, I had to write into MileagePlus to adjust the earnings to the correct amount for the booked fare class (Y).

So uh, not sure that really helps but suffice to say flights don't appear to be credited based on fare basis.
