Question Miles for AF marketed but non-FB-partner operated flight?

Hello,
I recently flew on Georgian Airways (A9) marketed by AF on AF ticket between CDG and TBS. Can I expect to get any miles for this?
I'm less familiar with ST: Is there a general rule that applies for mileage earning either in favor of operating carrier (like *A) or marketing carrier (like OW)?
Thanks in advance!

yes you'll earn FB miles based on the price of your ticket, as per usual FB rules since this is a AF-coded ticket. You'll earn XPs as well. If you are a member of another ST program (not FB), you won't earn any miles.

Thanks for the quick and precise answer!

Seems to take a little longer than my connecting flight out of CDG (AF marketed and operated), which already posted.

Make sure you keep BPs and ticket information, in case you need to retroclaim

That's pretty normal, AF/KL operated flights can post immediately after the flight, other ST/codeshare partners take a bit longer, if it doesn't post within a week you could retroclaim.

On a related note, since this month it is possible to earn XP on certain non-SkyTeam Flying Blue partners without a AF/KL flightnumber. This includes Air Mauritius, GOL and Malaysia Airlines. Article (in Dutch): https://insideflyer.nl/verdien-flyin...uiten-skyteam/
