Cathay Dragon's Tier Points

I was trying to figure out some routes for Cathay Dragon, but I couldn't find their tier points on BA's Tier Point Calculator.....

It is not under Cathay Pacific Airways as these are routes not served by the carrier, but only by Cathay Dragon.

Does anyone know? Is it just the Club points equivalent? TIA

Which routes specifically are you looking at?

KA should earn TPs identical to CX and I think it may all just be listed as CX on the drop down menu when you select the airline.

They earn same as CX I believe. Another advantage is if you are booking with CX and fly PE they book your dragon flight in an economy flex bucket. This meant that when I did LAX to Bangalore via Hong Kong, I got 340 tier points in PE and economy. 100 each way for the PE in CX and 70 for the economy legs of Hong Kong to Bangalore. If I'd gone economy would have been a lowly 60 or something. There again, even more on offer if you go business.

I think you have to put each leg into the calculator separately. CX/KA do not fly SIN-TPE, so I assume you want SIN-HKG (only operated by CX) and then HKG-TPE (operated by both).

No 10 TPs options at all on flights under 2k miles?

A word of caution on HKG-TPE - KA flights operate out of the Midfield Concourse which involves a bus journey from T1
