Confused about Tier points anf Exec miles
 
As a new Executive Club member, I have a question regarding tier points. Can I use a certain BA flight to accumulate tier points and the same flight to accrue miles on AA Advantage and not Exec miles?

I'm afraid not - you can either credit a flight to BA and earn tier points and BA miles, or to AA to earn Advantage miles. There is no way of mixing the two.

In fact, the only scheme I know off that allows you to double dip is Singapore Airlines Krisflyer, where you can earn sectors towards their PPS Club (when flying J or F) and miles in any Star Alliance FFP.

And to make it worse there are also BA flights that are not eligable for AA miles and Vice Versa...

Thanks for the info. I am planning on flying LHR-DXB in WT+. I believe I can claim Advantage status miles on this flight.

You can indeed. Have a good flight and enjoy DXB!

You could claim BA tier points and Asiamiles mileage for the same flight, but your account must be registered in Asia. Of course, Asiamiles is a poor reward program but that's beside the point. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/rolleyes.gif
