LHR-DUB TP's or no TP's

I flew LHR-DUB a while back booked with BA but of course on EI metal. I got both TP's and miles. This time I flew the same route, but booked on the EI website and while the flight shows up in my BAEC account, it's zero TP's and zero miles. Is that correct?

I later flew DUB-LYS on EI and got no TP's, but 184 miles.

I think its all down to the fare code booked with EI.

TP's only if booked under BA flight code.

Miles depend on the EI fare code

I know this is a daft question, but how do you book from LON to DUB through BA? Clearly not on ba.com, as it [correctly] denies that BA flies there.

The reason I ask is that we were thinking of visiting Dublin, but want to earn TPs and/or Miles wherever we go.

You can fly from jersey to Dublin on Aer Lingus.

When booking tickets there is a section to put on BA EC Number on Page 4 of the Booking form. With Pax details etc..

You can't book through BA from LON to DUB. It can only be booked as a codeshare as part of a connection to a BA metal flight.

Getting miles is possible when booking elsewhere, but difficult to predict as its fare class dependent and EI do a good job of hiding the fare class you are booking into on their website.

Thanks ... I guessed it was all a bit mysterious!!

So ... having found the JER-DUB on the EI website, it seems I get 'some' miles but no indication of earning TPs. It's the TPs I/we really need, but I guess not being on BA metal knocks that idea on the head.

Fly to london. Then fly to Dublin.

I was thinking I was being presumptuous, everyone would go the extra route to get TP points. Also some would do a flight just to get TP points.

LGW to Dub is 19 on certain days. So the TP from the flight to LGW then miles to Dub.

Many thanks ... that's what I was thinking as well ... JER-LGW on BA [miles + TP], LGW-DUB on IE [just miles].

We hit silver at the end of this month, but keeping that is going to be a bit of a challenge [hence the TP need]. Just doing TP Runs to LGW is tedious, albeit fairly quick, and the OH would like an extra break somewhere. I'll have to do some calculations

When I booked LYS-LHR-DUB on ba.com it worked fine. Got the miles and TP's for both legs. Same for flights to BFS.

ba.com won't accept JER-LGW + LGW-DUB as a Multi-City.
It will book me through to EDI, so perhaps we'll go there instead!

So that would be 40 TPs for 216 ... is that reasonable?

What happens if you punch in jer-dub on ebookers or something like that ? Or can you book it via the call centre foregoing the 15 quid charge as it's impossible on the web?

JER-DUB will probably give the direct EI flight

Testing ... Testing ...
Sorry. ebookers does not support flights for the location that you have selected. Please choose another location.
Ahh, the wrong day, clearly!!

Testing ... testing ... 150 direct with EI, or 521 via LGW [BA and then EI].

Sorry, DUB, it looks like EDI wins at 216

Presumably you will spend a day or two there.

Oh, yes indeed ... the intention is to go somewhere for a few days for a mini-break, whilst at the same time rattling some TPs. We're neither time- nor cash-constrained, but looking to have a more pleasant way of getting some TPs [requirement calculation yet to be done] than just shuttling to LGW

I think we now know where we're going; we'll sort out the when, and accommodation in slow time.

Apologies to all for diverting the DUB thread ...
