Why does BA not award tier bonus for JV Partner AY?

Hi,

I'm planning a summer vacation to SE Asia hoping to snag one of the QR fares from Eastern Canada and see that BA and AY are selling comparable R/J fares on their own metal. I was about to pull the trigger when I double checked the Avios Calculator and see that I earn no bonus tier points for flying AY either as part of the BA Trans-Atlantic JV or the BA Trans-Siberian JV. All JA, AA, & IB flights earn bonuses when crediting to your EC account.

Any idea as to why Finnair is included in the JVs but treated as a sub-partner for earning potential in the Executive Club? I tweeted BA, but they kept reassuring me that I'd earn avios and tier points, which was not what I asked (hence, go to the experts, not the social media intern minding the twitter account this morning).

Thoughts?

What? JetSmart (JA) earns tier bonus to BAEC?

Join AY+. Then you will get tier bonus on AY flights.

You'll collect Avios at the BA earning rate plus tier bonus if you book yourself on the BA coded flight number
