Earning on Aer Lingus

I'm confused.... I was just about to book a business class trip between LBA and ORD on what looked a nice connection through DUB on EI. I see it earns Avios at a suitable rate... but am I right in waking up to the fact that no tier points would be earned??

You are correct. No Tier points. EI is not a Oneworld member.

The way around this is to book under a BA codeshare, instead of prime EI flight numbers, in which case you will get TPs and Avios at the usual rate. But the cost will then probably be in line with the rest of BA's fares.
