Booking a friend under my emirates skywards account

I was wondering if I can book my friend's flight under my emorstes skywards account and acquire the points?

Can it work that way?

Of course it can't unless they have the same name as you

Unfortunately no:

Skywards Miles means those Miles earned every time a Member takes a Qualifying Flight or purchases qualifying goods and services from any Partner and which can be redeemed for Rewards under the Emirates Skywards Programme Rules.

If you try it, it won't credit properly as the names won't match. Even if an agent somehow forces it, it would still be against the T&Cs.

Strangely I booked my wife and son on a flight to Dubai from Qatar I put my number in and got the miles. Only 700 each way. Tried it again recently and it's been rejected.

Signed them up for their own accounts on the family scheme so I should get 20% of their points which happens to include 20% of 2 x 3200 'first time flyer' points so not too bad.

Without digging, I am betting they have a rule against this. Some airlines have been known to suspend/close accounts as this is usually considered fraud.

As to getting 700 - hmmmm...


Distance from Doha to Dubai:
238 miles

383 kilometers

207 nautical miles

Y Flex earns 1400 miles return on that route. EK goes by regions, not point to point distance. Booking classes affect earning.
