Crediting Air China L Flights

Has anyone had success crediting CA L class flights to AV? There's a 2 year old thread mentioning a problem but I haven't seen anything since.

I don't have any experiences but I can give some background. In March 2016, Air China changed the L fare from a high fare to a very low discount bucket and almost every carrier in *A dropped L fares to 25% or 0% earning except LifeMiles. I'd say it's definitely possible that they did so internally but never bothered to update the chart, although it has been almost 3 years so that would be very disappointing and misleading if true; since it's still on the chart you could probably finagle them into giving you the miles if they don't post although you'll probably have to try pretty hard and don't listen to them when they tell you to contact Air China; Air China can't help.

CA is Air China, not China Airlines.

Thanks. The only reason for me to book a CA L fare would be to credit to AV at 100%, so I don't think I'm going to try.

LM is crediting CA L fares, it's 100%, just credited a few segments, they are pretty quick.

Thanks for the DP. Did those segments include transpacific flights?
