Alaska Miles when flying on Hainan/Hong Kong Airlines
 
I'm flying from ORD to HKG on Hainan Airlines (I Class) to PEK and then Hong Kong Airlines (J Class) from PEK to HKG. I know I can earn Mileage Plan miles on the Hairnan flight. Anyone know if I can also earn Alaska Mileage Plan miles on the Hong Kong Airlines flight?

Yup, not sure how accurate those links are.

The reason I ask about Hong Kong Airlines is that if you go to the Hong Kong Airlines website it says you can earn miles in their plan (Fortune Wings Club - which is also the frequent flyer program of Hainan Airlines) when flying on Alaska Airlines. I figured that meant the reverse would also be true. Maybe, maybe not.

Hong Kong Airlines is not listed.

Hong Kong airlines only credits to fortune wings, no other Hainan partners.

Similar to non-earning on CX's Dragonair subsidiary.

Fortune Wings is the FF program that contains Hainan, so they were always partners with Alaska. Alaska flights count for miles for Fortune Wings.

The problem is flying HK Airlines earns nothing on Alaska MP

Welcome to Flyertalk.

Still not listed on the AS website as a partner. So as not to mislead anyone, nobody should expect AS miles until AS announces you can earn on HX.

That's awesome, but I don't see any press release on the web. Source?

These links mention AS back to October 2018. it looks like all of the Hainan group airlines can earn on AS since they all use the same Fortune Wings Club

I don't think there are plans to allow reciprocal earning except on Hainan. CX and HK air are direct competitors so unless CX leaves we probably wont be getting Hk Air
