Non-* codeshare (TG metal), earns miles?

I recently booked a flight on Lao Airlines VTE-BKK (QV flight #) but it is operated by TG metal. Would that earn UA miles (since TG is operating carrier), or does that only work for *A flight #s?

If it's operated by TG, it makes no difference whatsoever who markets it. With Mileage Plus, the operator is the only thing that matters (there used to be two exceptions, but those have been gone for a while). Just make sure it's a mileage-earning booking class - and be sure to use TG's booking class and not QV's.

How can I tell the TG booking class? The QV record locator won't pull up on TG's site.
