AA or BA miles London to India

My DH is traveling Bos to London on AA and on to India via BA. He is traveling business class. We want to save for a trip to Sydney using miles. Can we get AA miles for the BA flight? Will we get more miles from AA? Your discussions about the new BA Executive miles program have left me confused.

I would suggest AA, and enrol in the Platinum Challenge. The BOS-LHR-BOM (assuming BOM) return is about 15,400 flown miles, which in J would yield around 19,300 Q points - enough for your DH to attain AA Platinum - the same as BA Silver or OneWorld Sapphire.

More information about the platinum challenge here - FewMiles' Unofficial Guide to AAdvantage, and read about the challenge in "Undocumented".
