Creding EY flights to Eurobonus- worth it?

I have a return ARN-SIN (via CDG and AUH) journey coming up and was planning to credit this to my EuroBonus account. Ive recently read somewhere that not all my flights would be elegible for EuroBonus is this true?

If it makes a difference im in F apart from the ARN-CDG legs which are EY codeshares on AF (in J).

So is it worth crediting to SAS or should I open an EY Guest account?
Thanks!

According to sas.se, you only get points on flights between AUH and AMS, ATH, BRU, DUS, FRA, GVA, LHR, MXP, FCO and ZRH. So, it appears that you won't get any Eurobonus miles on CDG-AUH-SIN.

Codeshares are always problematic. Flying a codeshare flight marketed by one airline (flight number), operated by a second airline and crediting the frequent flyer miles/points to a third airlines ffp is always problematic. Usually only works if all three are in the same alliance (Oneworld - Star - Skyteam) or specific provision in the ff program rules. e.g AA miles or BA avios on QF marketed flight operated by EK. With non alliance partners even if the marketing and operating carriers are both partners of your ffp the codeshare does not always earn ff miles/points.
Some ffp earn based on the marketing airlines & others the operating airline.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like my cunning plan to get extra EuroBonus miles isnít going to work! Might just end up crediting to EY and figure out what to do with them later!

Thanks again!

Be mindful of expiry Miles/Points that Do and Don't Expire. Click to open the wiki.
EY has a hard 2 year expiry.
EY is a ff partner of AA and several other airlines.
Adding frequent miles in a ff program that you can use are worth more than ff miles in an orphan ffp that you will never use, even if the earning rate is nominally better.

Maybe I got something wrong, but if your priority is getting Eurobonus points, then could you not claim everything with Eurobonus, some segments will be counted, others won't (and here we assume we don't know for sure which). Then you can retroactively claim the segments which Eurobonus rejected with EY?

That's what I do when I have a ticket with mixed fares, for example. My priority is Aegean where I want to maintain my status. If going there is in Brussels Airlines K and return in S, I claim first with Aegean (and use my *G benefits), get my S miles and 0% for the K flights. Then I retroactively claim with SAS the K flights. That way I get both because Aegean earns 0% on K, so I can claim those flights somewhere else. So could you not do that in your case?
Sorry if I misunderstood your question, though.

No youíre right the priority was to try and get EuroBonus points over EY as I donít usually fly with them however in this case it looks like none of the flights will qualify for EuroBonus so that option has gone.

On a separate note i didnt think it was possible to split credit to different schemes so that is interesting to know!

If you can still cancel the flight at a reasonable cost, you could look at rebooking through SQ and do a lot better on the EuroBonus earnings.

So wanted to add in my experience with EY a few years back, flying return CPH-BRU-AUH-MLE. I managed to claim points/miles on the same flights both with SK and EY programs. As the system is/was not automatic/synchronized, this might still be possible.

Yes, exactly. Retroregistered with both programs after having flown the segments, leaving the FFP-number blank on the BP's.
