Can you split a partner award booking PNR with two people on the award? Or do you have to cancel and hope the buckets are still there to rebook individually?

Answer: Yes, it is possible just call in and have them split the PNR. Took some shuffling from the partner award site to sync, but no issues.

I'm looking to book SOF -> SEA flight on a third party booking site. The flight is marketed as BA but portions are operated by AA. Will Alaska count the entire trip as BA for mileage purposes, or will it use the AA chart for the portions flown on AA metal?

The BA operated flights with BA flight numbers will earn according to the BA charts. If the AA flights have BA flight numbers, they will not earn in Mileage Plan. Accruing Partner Miles "has always been" on eligible Partner Marketed & Operated flights as per the official T&Cs. AS unofficially allowed accrual on codeshare flights where both the Marketing & Operating carriers were both AS partners and a manual request was required.

When AS announced a closer partnership with AA and domestic AA flight accural, the charts were updated and now specifically states codeshare flights will not accrue Mileage Plan miles.

Partner Airline American Airlines: Overview

To ensure flight credit for travel on American Airlines, the two-letter airline code (AA) must precede the flight number (for example, AA XXXX) on your ticket receipt or boarding pass, and the flight must be operated by American Airlines. Flights marketed by another carrier and operated by American or marketed by American and operated by another carrier are not eligible to earn Mileage Plan miles, even if both partners are Mileage Plan partners.

Thanks, this is very helpful. I think the rules for BA would actually apply here since it is the marketing carrier, and I can see they have the same policy for flights marketed by BA and operated by other airlines. I'll plan to book a flight marketed and operated by BA.
