I have not, in fact, the required class availability drained to 0 on the day I wanted, so I stopped calling. They refused to escalate to supervisors, to airline etc.

In regards to IRROPS, I settled with the option they gave me, with extra stop, it was just not worth it to because inquire further and spend half of vacation on the phone.

Which expedia website? .com seems to be better than European versions.

It was .com. If I was able to price an itinerary there, I used it, not other versions. Pre-covid I was happy with it, now I only use if I dont intend to touch it or so.

Can confirm my tickets booked via Expedia are issued on SN stock

Just one of the many reasons why I would never use (and have never used) OTAs - irrespective of how much that would bring the price down.

In this case, AC ticket in P brings 200% to TP and 150% to TK - SN ticket in P brings one big ZERO to both TP and TK ... Thank you, but no, thank you!

For Star Alliance since when is the issuing carrier of importance? It is always the fare class of the operating carrier, i.e. it doesn't matter if ticket is issued on AC or SN ticket stock.

That is not my experience - I have a real-life example, where for flights issued on LH in P but operated by LX in P I got exactly ZERO credit at TK. When I complained, they told me that I have an LH ticket so I should go and grit wood ...

Must be a mistake. I have always got miles in TK program in case of LH-issued tickets for LX -operated flights on booking class which is eligible for LX accrual but would not be eligible on LH-operated flights...

Correct, and if you try to get miles with TK for LH flight in P class you will get none regardless if ticketed on LX stock rather than LH stock (you get 100% miles for LX P class with TK).
