Question Question for the experts: Miles with China Southern

I will be traveling with China Southern.
LHR-CAN Eco Z
CAN-BNE Eco V
BNE-CAN Eco V
CAN-CDG Eco T
Airfare incl. taxes Euro 716

Had a look at the website with the calculator but am not sure.
Will I get miles and XP? If so how many.

The FB wensite has a page for China Southern:

It would seem that none of your segments would qualify.

You will get nothing unfortunately.
That's really bad given the routing.

Your best chance is to credit this trip to CZ or OK.

LHR-CAN Eco Z 2374
CAN-BNE Eco V 1738
BNE-CAN Eco V 1738
CAN-CDG Eco T 2373
Total 8223

So, it takes about 5 cheapo returns to get Silver and about 10 to get Gold. LoL

Well, if the fare was EUR716, CZ probably do not need to reward anyone for loyalty here?

If people are booking purely based on price, there is very little point in handing out miles...

Checked most of the SkyTeam partners and the answer is always: None. At least for these deep discount fare classes.
Exception is Delta with 25% even on deep discounted fare classes like V, Z, T.
As I do already have some miles with Delta I’ll have them crediting there. Also, im interested how many it’ll actually be.
