Credit any TP/LH legs to your *A account. I've updated all legs with their respective FF numbers (UA on TP).
Thanks, I was looking for that answer too, Flying LH LIS-FRA in C.

So I can add the LH leg to credit on my preferred *A (probably CM) separately from the CX leg? I thought I had to make the jugglery/timing of first adding the *A FF and then, after arriving to FRA changing the FF to AS for the CX leg.

Cathay lets you enter a Frequent Flyer Number for each segment individually when you manage the booking via their website.

Hello.
When you credit to *A did you get the REF# for TP LH and do it on their site or did you add it somewhere on CX as I only see one place for FFP # Cheers

Just looking too but mine doesn't show UA nor CM in the LH leg (it's LH flown and marketed), so i'll try calling or adding at check-in at the airport.

For this kind of deeply discounted sales I don't think it's advised to try to request changes, but anyhow I also think that the fare rules should prevail?, and this being premium full fare buckets they should be flexible.. Or they can request the fare difference after repricing?
Sorry i'm exposing even more questions than you originally did. We better hear from folks with much more experience on this topic.

In my case the first leg was TP - so I just managed the booking on Tap Portugal's site and added the UA # there. Amadeus/same booking ref between CX and TP, so I'm not sure about LH...others can chime in.

Then I went to CX's website and added my BA #.

They already made a public statement that they would be honouring the fares.

Thank you for the reply, I read the SMCP news, but do you mind point me to the statement from CX? This is my first time buying ticket like this... thanks for the help,

Great idea, tried directly at LH page (same case here, same booking ref for CX and LH) but unfortunately LH page is a mess, tried without logging in and there's no option to input FF, tried to log in with my lifelong credentials, pass reset couple of times after many errors, still says password expired. Guess their IT team is on strike.

I will call later or add at check-in counter.
