Beware if you book a domestic flight in "N" class (economy, special web fare) with AF as this fare does not give FF miles.
Is this an AF-only thing or are there any other carriers that have special fares that do not entitle you to anything ?

Patrick, that's true - on the other hand, you actually still get more than 100% of the miles actually flown that way: the longest domestic route I know would be KEL-MUC (which, I think, isn't even offered anymore) and that route is 423mi (HAM-MUC is 373mi, STR-TXL is 322mi).
As far as I know, by the way, BMI doesn't give out 100% on all fares - I'd have to go look for the inflight magazine that I've got somewhere around here, but I think they - on some fares, web-only-fares if I recall correctly - go down to 25% of miles flown.

Frank, I was a little bit angry when I heard that you only receive 500 miles per flight when booked in T-class, but now I think that it is only fair. In the past everyone received the same miles, no matter if you paid 92 EUR for a roundtrip in the lowest booking class or if you paid 300 EUR for a roundtrip in flexible Economy Class, nowadays I have no problem with receiving only half of the miles when I am booked in the cheap T-class.

Patrick, I know the feeling - I was somewhat annoyed at first as well, but - just as you said - I have no problems with it now (better less miles than non at all, right?)... and since you barely get T-class-seats from HAJ, it doesn't matter that much for me anyway...
And, I just remembered that N, X, G, O, A and B-Class on AF also don't give you miles on TAM's Fidelidade program, not just on domestic flights, but on intra-european ones as well... a friend actually missed reconfirming his red-(top-)status because of that...
But as far as I know, you get miles on any TAM booking class on Fidelidade - because all my SDU-CGH flights last year were on the lowest class available, and I got points each and every time.
