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?

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!
