Delta does so I thought so but thanks.

Delta is special.

Easy way to tell what you'll earn where is www.wheretocredit.com

Mileage partner tickets should book into U (at least mine are), and earn 0% in all programs

With some airlines it can depend on whether you have a full award / classic award flight or a points plus pay flight, but as the others have said, generally you don't get points / miles for award flights.

Apologies if this is a stupid question. I've upgraded a DOH - NRT leg from Economy to Business with Avios, and my flight is now showing as (U). Will I still earn mileage on the original booking class?

Hi there, I'm connecting from a Regional F inbound (coming from DXB) to a Business Lite outbound.
​​​​​​
Is there any lounge access as I read somehow that even Regional F class inbound is now eligible for this?

Hi all, does anyone know how long it takes for an AA flight to credit to my QR Privilege Club account?

It was booked with QR, under QR codeshare, but operated by AA (DOH< >JFK). Outbound was on 1st September, and hasn't shown yet.

I need to change an economy booking which has been upgraded using Avios and QCredits. It was made in June 2022 for travel commencing October 2022 so not covered by the Travel With Confidence or similar policies.

Under "regular" rules, can I get the Avios and QCredits refunded or the upgrades transferred to the new booking dates (there is availability on the new dates).

Another Question: upgrading from Economy to First doesnt mean access to Al Safwa Lounge neither First Class Checkin at Doha I assume?

I was able to book one way flights for my honeymoon from BOS-JRO in Qsuite. However, I can't find any openings for the return flight (ZNZ-BOS, 7/15/2023). I've been checking basically everyday for the past few months and the seats seemingly never opened up on this route. Does Qatar ever not open seats on a route? There's nothing available to day before/after, and nothing to DC, ORD, or JFK (easy/frequent flights to boston)

Does Qatar allow Economy award tickets to be upgraded with cash to business?

Just called Qatar Airways call center, they claim that it's impossible to add an infant seat to an flexi award ticket. Is that true? If not, how do I book an infant seat?

It's not true. You can add an infant to the ticket and any QR ticket. With QR, it's 10% of the existing business class J fare. Forum search is your friend:

Infant lap seat for a oneworld award

Thanks for the confirmation, so I guess just need to keep hanging up and calling again until I get a competent customer service agent who is able to issue an infant ticket? Because the guy I had on the phone was categorical that it was impossible.
