RTW tickets

Does anyone know if RTW tickets such as Global Explorer and World Discovery qualify for FF miles? Can't find any details of fare basis codes...

Don't know what "World Discovery" is, but for the oneworld RTW products, economy fares are booked in M class.  Please see the Unofficial oneworld Info Desk for more info.

According to the info I have, you can earn AAdv miles for AA, BA, AY, IB (30%), LA, and QF (70%) in M-class.  CX and EI do not give miles for M fares.

Hopefully the oneworld experts can give you more info on all this.

Thanks, FewMiles...living in Scotland has it's drawbacks..my planned (provisional)itinerary included several BA flights - and UK residents don't earn points on M class fares with BA. I'm sure I read something in UK travel press a while ago about earning free flights with OneWorld RTW tkts..I'll call BA to confirm; maybe there's an exception for RTW's to allow M class earning.
