Works with BRU, also GVA, ZRH, most German airports, slightly higher costs for WAW, ROM, MXP.

Very limited dates, though. Early-mid June. Primarily Edelweiss air... but also SN, LX and UA combinations. I booked once on UA stock, once on LH stock.

(for those on the "other" board this is essentially a zero base fare)

FYI the most effective way to get mod attention is to click the red ! icon on the left (full desktop site), or the blue ! triangle (mobile skin) and submit the form that follows. (But no need to do it this time, I just did )

Does Edelweiss credit to UA?

As a subsidiary of Swiss, they do. They even have their own partner page on UA.com:

https://www.united.com/CMS/en-US/Mar...spx?ItemId=650

Just make sure your flight numbers are covered if not booked on ua.com / not with a UA flight number.

Why? What does a UA Flight number have to do with anything? Star credits based on metal flown, not ticket number or codeshare or flight number.

In the example given by the OP, he would take LX Flight 8018 and LX 8019. But according to the UA page, they would only credit to UA for PQM if they were LX flights 8500-8969.

Edelweiss seems to be unusual - crediting some flights for RDM but not for PQM. The UA Edelweiss page reads "Please note: To assure flights are eligible and will earn miles, these flights should be booked through United. Flights booked through edelweiss.com will not accrue mileage.". I booked mine at LH.com, will see how that turns out.... At the moment showing 0 miles :-(

For a less RDM, more PQM run the whole thing can be booked on UA.com, almost entirely on UA metal, for the same price.
