Booked on 016 ticket stock an LH flight number operated by Deutsche Bahn.

Should I expect any MP credit at all?

No, there will be no mileage credit for these segments no matter if on 016- or 220-documents.

That's for flights operated by LH. This "flight" is to be operated by Deutsche Bahn. There is zer UA credit for such segments.

Out of curiosity, how did you book this ticket? I didnít realize that Lufthansa Rail Express could be booked on 016 tickets.

We have another thread ongoing about the new Rail&fly partnership between United and Deutsche Bahn. Different approach to those tickets, however.

Rail&fly with United in Germany

I booked a CGN-PDX Lufthansa fare, plated on United 016 stock (or whatever way that CGN and QKL are treated as co-terminals). The fare was cheaper than from FRA.

United let me book it since the return half of the ticket had some United flights.

Just be careful not mixing those things up:

Rail & fly is a service offered by Deutsche Bahn which allows you to use the train to get to the airport/ get from the airport to any train station within Germany (and some at the border) after/ before your flight (example: you can arrive in Fra and take the train to Berlin).
The fixed price for this is 33Eur (second class).
You do not get any miles for this.
When you want this you need to enter QYG as your destination (German Railway Station).

The second thing is LH flight operated by Deutsche Bahn (you get them between FRA and Stuttgart or Cologne). There is a code for the main train stations.
there is a flight attendant on board and those are official LH flight numbers.
You got miles for this in the past, but not anymore.

Youíre correct in that the fixed price for a Rail&fly ticket is Ä33; however, thatís only if youíre buying the ticket through Lufthansa on 220 stock. United builds the Rail&fly ticket into its fare, requiring you to search for flights into or out of QYG on its website. United prices the fare differently than Lufthansa does.

Note that I did some research into Unitedís Rail&fly fares, which I shared in the thread linked to in my previous post. And, no miles for the Rail&fly ticket.
