Lufthansa Economy Light (V) Fare

Booked into Economy Light (V) on Lufthansa in May and I am wondering if I will still accrue AQS/AQM towards Altitude status?

Aeroplan website seems to say that V fare class does accrue on AC, but if an FTer could verify this I would really appreciate it!

I was about to ask the same question and found this thread.

Air Canada's website only shows booking classes and doesn't distinguish between Economy Light (V), Classic (V), and Flex (V) — all earn 100%. I don't believe that would be the case if one were crediting to M&M. So just wanted to confirm with anyone who might have first-hand experience?

Light, Classic and Flex fares all earn according to the booking class with both Aeroplan and LH M&M, the type of fare does not matter. ACs website lists V as an eligible booking class, you therefore will get miles (albeit at a reduced rate on flights within Europe).

Sorry to bother again, but is my read correct that an LH Economy Light T or W fare within Europe would earn 50% on Aeroplan irrespective of the fact that it's an Economy Light (rather than Economy Classic) fare? Thank you!

Your read is correct. A Lufthansa Light fare earns as much (or as little) as a Classic or Flex fare.

Sorry to tack on this - I'm booked into Economy Class K on a LH flight in Septmeber. Based on the chart provided, it doesn't seem like I'll earn any points towards my Aeroplan?

I believe that's correct. Lufthansa K fares are not eligible for earning on AP.
