Hi all, will I earn 100% UA FF miles if I fly LH and SQ with a SQ W or B class ticket ? I know that it has been discussed before but I would like to be sure that things have not changed since...

By the way, I'm planning to fly in february and I've also posted the question on flyertalk but I can't wait for the replies  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks a lot.

With Lufthansa you will receive 50% with W class, Also check again with the UA mileage Plus program for all updated info

I am myself a Thai Gold member, however sometimes some rules may be slightly different on mileage accrual.

Thanks for the info, I'm not really worried about the LH leg because the flight will be short (BRU-FRA), but of course 100% would be better. For SQ, I've checked that booking classes G/N/Q/V/R and T don't give any FF miles, so a W or B class will be fine  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Thanks again.

If you are flying LH but getting UA miles, then the rules follow UA. Therefore you earn 100% of paid economy miles flown. There are no fare class rules. However with SQ, you have to be in certain fare classes. UA and LH are special within Star.

Here is UA's page with more info

Thanks guys for the info, 750 miles for BRU-FRA is very nice as the distance is only 189 miles according to the great circle mapper !
I have bought my ticket, the LH legs are booked in Q class and the rest on SQ W class. This itinerary will earn me more than 20000 FF miles so I really hope everything is fine for mileage accrual  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
