JAL FOPs on BA flights?

I will be flying London-Venice and Barcelona-London on BA in July. Will these flights earn miles and/or FOPs toward my JMB account?

cheers

Yes to miles and FOPs.

Note, however, that if you have JMB status (Crystal, Sapphire, JGP, Diamond), you will not get elite bonus miles for non-JL flights unless those flights are code-share flights with JL and you are ticketed on the JL flight number.

Great, thanks for the quick response!

No elite status yet, but hoping to be there by the end of the year.

Is there any way of checking how many miles/FOPs will be gained from partner airline flights?

You need to check you BA flight's booking class to confirm whether it will accumulate FOPs or not

Thanks for the links. Like so many things on the JAL website, the Japanese page works fine and the English page doesn't

BA's miles and FOPs are dreadful, aren't they. I'll have to be more careful who I book with in the future!
