Tier point confusion

Just booked BOG-MAD-BCN-LGW-LHR-MAD-BOG on mixed IB/BA in I/J which, according to my calculations should give me:

bogmad 140
madbcn 20
bcnlgw 40
lhrmad 40
madbog 140

Giving a total of 380 tier points I think. The booking in BAEC is showing only 240. Have I messed up somewhere?

Are all flights showing in MMB? Also, click on the flight number to see the fare code.

I suspect the BOG/MAD may be missing as doesn't connect directly to a BA service.

You're quite right, that segment's missing. This will come out in the wash, right?

It's a bit like some AA flights that don’t appear. Unlikely to appear. So just have to make sure it appears elsewhere.

Finnair has a great way of checking bookings. Worth a try.

Yes this is entirely normal for mixed airline routings and Iberia is on a separate system anyway. This is bridged by creating a ghost sector for the service immediately after the BA service, but there's no point in doing that for IB to IB. So long as your BAEC is on both BA and IB bookings I don't think you'll have a problem, but as always with more complex trips, take a photo or screenshot of your boarding passes as you go along.

It's on IB.

They'll be no problem crediting the TPs, right?

Donít worry. If there is just claim them afterwards, bearing in mind CWSís advice up thread.
