Avios and tier points on IB flight sold by latam?

Do you get avios and/or tier points on flights sold by Latam but which are flying on IB codes/on Iberia metal if credited to Iberia or BA? Can a flight sold and operated by Latam be credited to Iberia?

You CANNOT earn Tier Points or Avios with British Airways on IB-code, LATAM metal.

You can earn Avios from Iberia Plus, however a recent poster didn't actually receive the Avios. So YMMV...


I believe that LATAM-coded, LATAM metal can earn Avios, but NOT TPs with BAEC. (as well as IB+)

Does that mean you do get it on IB coded IB metal if credited to BA, the only latam part is that they sold the ticket.

Yes, who issues the ticket doesn't matter.

I would double and triple check that LATAM is indeed selling you an IB coded flight. But if so, they are basically just like any other travel agent and you would earn BA Avios and TPs on your Iberia flight.

Hello please can you help? If you book an IB flight via the BA app will you earn BA tier points and Avios? Many thanks

Of course you will earn TP and Avios.

An IB flight operated by Iberia is fine...

I can't say with 100% confidence that BA isn't selling something random that doesn't count for TPs and Avios...
