Crediting BA IAP fare to AS

Has anyone had experience with buying a BA flight with the Amex IAP fare and getting miles to credit to AS? I just bought a discounted J fare on BA, but cannot find the fare bucket on either the Amex or BA site. Reading through some other forums it seems these are BT fares, which credit to BA, but I wanted to double check if they would still credit to AS.

Edit: I actually did book a IAP fare last year on BA and had it credit to AS, but was able to see the fare bucket, so wondering if anyone recently has had experience?

Putting the BA PNR into Finnair manage booking may show the fare booking class

BA site will show the fare bucket. You have to click on the details for the flight (it's not displayed in the default view).

Out of curiosity, what was the fare class and rough price of the ticket? With the old 2-for-1 IAP, it sounded like it generally booked into a high (e.g. refundable) fare class, but now it seems more hit-or-miss.

Fare class was I, so it wasn't out of the ordinary and within the AS fare bucket. The booking I did last year also was an A and C so those earned credit as well.

Check each leg...if you book an I fare on BA, typically the intra-Europe connection (if you have one) is in J, which nets a heftier bonus.
