Have not personally, but I class seems to earn on Alaska w/ good bonuses (100% base + 25% class of service + add'l 100% additional) so long as it is Emirates marketed and falls in eligible flight number range.. https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mi...er-overview:EK

Wish I could be a bit more helpful, but I was unable to recall or confirm my class code information. Went back through my emails and documentation and cannot find specifics on which class fare I was on, other than it was "business saver"

In October 2016 I had a coach ticket purchased through work, when I went to check-in I was offered opportunity to pay out of pocket to upgrade to Business Class. I took that upgrade, and I did get bonus miles at the time (they didn't offer the extra 100% until December 2016).

Business class emirates was not only an amazing experience, but it gave me a boat-load of miles on the SEA-DXB trip... and this was before the 100% bonus. If you can get business class at a good value, it'll be great miles (as long as its a qualifying flight #)

I recently flew SEA-DXB-DEL(Y Class) on EK. Was able to get the double miles promo that works on certain routes. For me, I got double miles between SEA-DXB, but not between DXB and DEL.

Its probably posted on the AS website what routes qualify for the bonus miles, but I didn't look. My guess is it will be all USA-DXB routes.
