Would anyone be able to advise me if I will be able to earn BA Tier points on a journey between LHR & RIX in - D - class using fare type DEUNBA?

Thanks.

Yes. D is discounted business class and you will earn 40 tier points for each sector.

Make sure you check that your points get credited after the flight!

Question - When I've flown economy (JFK-LHR R/T) and booked on ba.com, it's difficult to find out what tier points you'll earn, since there's no fare basis on the e-ticket. To compound this, I get different points on the outbound and inbound legs. Is there a Source I can go to to figure out these mysteries?

PS - can you also earn tier points on One World partners?

Comorin one of the poor features of ba.com is that it doesn't show you what booking class your ticket is. BA have promised this for some time but it is still yet to show up.

If you are flying in WT+ you should earn 75 tier pts per leg, 120pts in Club World and 180 in First. In WT you only earn tier points if you were booked in Y,B,H booking classes.

The way to tell what you are booked in is to get your email sent to you after you booked the ticket and to find the following part:

Ticket Number(s): 125-XXXXXXXX
Payment Type: American Express
Card Number: ***********XXXX
Payment Total: GBP XXXX.80
Date / Issued by: 22 Aug 2005 / British Airways, Newcastle, UK
IATA Number: XXXXXXX
Endorsements: Pax nonref/nonchg/deunba
Fare Details: GBP XXXXX + Tax/Fee/Charge GBP XXXX = GBP XXXX


The bolded part indicates the fare basis and the first letter indicates the booking class of the ticket. In this case it shows I was booked in D class, discounted business class.

Also, you can earn miles and points on OW partners. The exception to this is BA miles and tier points cannot be earned on AA flights between the US and the UK.

Thank you kindly for the clarification. I'm still a little puzzled why on the same r/t ticket I get different points/miles per leg. Doesn't the fare basis apply to the whole trip?

In short, no because the fare basis depends on the availability of certain booking classes on each individual leg. If you look on ba.com for example on the LHR-MAN route for flying in a few days time you'll notice some flights have availability for 9 GBP (in a yellow box) while others are over 140 GBP (in a purple box). If you booked one of each of the following legs it'd post as something like R class and B class respectively.

If both legs cost the same amount within 1 GBP or so they'd post as the same booking class on each leg.

Thanks again! I'm smarting because I carelessly let 3 F r/ts elapse on my Venture Club, and am all the way down to Blue after enjoying Gold for many years. The points matter as I am trying to climb out of the well like the proverbial frog...Jeremy Clarkson describes that angst pretty well!
