Issue is when itís a thru fare. What seems to be happening ó and it isnít exact ó is AA takes the mileage portion first and determines how many miles u get from that and then takes the balance of the the miles u would have gotten if it was all AA thru fare and subtracts the partner portion of the thru ticket. Net: it seems like on a mixed itinerary with a thru fare, you end up close to what you would have gotten if it was all AA marketed. Of course YMMV. This is not an exact science.

If you fly JFK-LHR-SOF and the JFK-LHR segment was AA but the LHR-SOF segment was on BA, how do you assign the value of the airfare from LHR-SOF which is not based on dollars but on mileage.
This is the same problem that's existed since EQD were introduced; it has nothing to do with "the new loyalty program".

Yes that is where the issue comes in. So theoretically: JFK-MAD-ATH is $1000 fare booked in S class. JFK-MAD on AA is 3590 miles and MAD-ATH on IB is 1481 miles for a total of 5071 miles

Is this what they do?.....

JFK-MAD represents 70.79% of the distance. Take $1000 and multiply it by 70.79% yielding $707.90 in fare. $707.90 x 9 (plat pro earning level) = 6,371 LPs for the AA leg

MAD-ATH on IB is calculated based on fare class and miles flown. 1481 miles (MAD->ATH) x 0.50 (S class fare basis) x 1.8 (plat pro earning level) = 1,333 LPs for the IB leg

Total = 7,704 LPs

Is this correct?
