The O inventory stands for an "Opaque Fare" these fares are typically Hotwire, Priceline, Expedia etc....These fares DO NOT accure Frequent Flier miles.
The TSA was created to make the post office look efficient!

I think you get miles from Expedia as they are published fares.

The link below indicates that "O" class is not eligible for mileage accrual in AAdvantage making it unlikely that it would be in other programs.

Yes - I know that AAdvantage does not allow it. But I thought that another mileage programm allow it...  Sad


Certain airline tickets are not eligible for earning mileage credit. These include, without limitation, the following: all tickets issued as AAdvantage awards or other free ticket promotions including free or reduced rate tickets; companion tickets; charter flight tickets; travel agency/ industry reduced rate tickets; infant and unpublished fares. (American Airlines tickets booked in O class or tickets booked in Q class with travel originating in Europe); and tickets issued subject to special provisions.
