Is the ticket coded QF or EK? And which class of travel?

If coded EK you earn according to EK Skywards zone earning (and Tier miles)

If coded QF you earn according to the QF partner earning by distance flown: http://www.emirates.com/english/skyw...es/qantas.aspx

Can't tell you exact amounts without knowing specific fare class of travel.

This is the cheap 1250 fare ex waw that was on the ba forum.

It would be a j class saver for sure but given is QF operated by EK I'm not sure how it works.

I class on QF code gives 1.25x miles flown in Skywards miles - so would expect that to be 22865*1.25 = 28581 Skywards miles for that itinerary.

Also, I thought EK were in the process of cancelling all of these tickets!

You'll only get tier miles if you book the EK coded flights.

If you have and it's a J saver then you'll get 30,628 tier miles. If it's a J special then 24,500.

What about

1. QF-coded, EK-ticketed and EK-operated?
2. QF-coded, QF-ticketed and EK operated?
3. EK-coded, EK-ticketed and QF operated?
4. EK-coded, QF-ticketed and QF operated?

I thought with the EK-QF partnership, you'll earn tier-miles for all the above scenario, except:

QF-coded and QF-operated?

Only scenarios 3 and 4. Similarly QF SCs on 1 and 2.

The partnership needs the code of the carrier you want to earn status on - RDM you'll earn with both in all 4 cases, depending on what's in the system (no double dipping!)

Using skywards miles to upgrade an emirates operated flight with QF code.

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade from J to F using skywards miles with a ticket purchased with Qantas? I want to purchase the London to Dubai ticket with Qantas and therefore the flight has a QF code.

Thanks

If it's EK operated then most probably yes but only onboard.

Unfortunately, you can't upgrade a 081 ticket with EK points.
