Quick question on booking for partner flights

I remember a few years back it was better to book with partners and then "Add" your skymiles account to them (Virgin Atlantic and Air France).

If you really wanted to play this game, you can book AF W (Prem Echon) from IAD-BOM for ~24k MQM at around $2,200 per r/t. I used November dates, have to book 60+ for these fairs I believe.

I believe the reason for international flights is more ironic than TSA screening policy stupidity.

If I'm not mistaken, DHS (who run TSA) have been forcing other nations with flights to the US to...

If I book it on the air France website, will my skymiles status show up on the BP?
