Air Europa operated by SWIFTAIR?

I need a flight to keep my miles alive, will a cheap ticket ALC-MAD do the trick?

With Matrix and Expedia it looks like I'll get booking class Z, but if I book on aireuropa.com I can't see the booking class - or can I ?

Z should earn miles/XP unless it makes a difference that is operated by Swiftair?

Indeed UX website doesn't show the booning classes. For avoidance of doubt you may want to book through an OTA displaying them - althogh if prices match, there is little chance booking classes differ.

And no difference in my experience whether the flight is operated by Swiftair

Operated by Swiftair is no problem.

I asked UX once about booking class on their website. Was told to book on line and choose wait option. Then call and sort it out. They know about the problem.

The link takes me to blank page.

It was "pay later" or something equivalent.

She said we could amend the booking class on the phone if needed.

Yes. That must be it.

Once you have locked the booking, you call to finalise. Ask for the booking class. If not the one you want, ask to change it.

Like I said, I don't see this option, tried several times and different browsers.

Regardless, as the price was the same as where I could see the booking class I bough a ticket from the UX site.
I still can't see the booking class, but my Flying Blue accounts tells me that I will earn 33 miles and 2 XP

I posted what it says on their website since you said the link didn't work
I also wrote that I don't see this option though...,
meaning on the payment screen there's only the option to pay immediately

The flight has to be in 7 days or more. Was it the case?
