AirxLiban - you cannot earn BA
Miles or Executive Club Points on transatlantic flights operated by AA
, and vice versa. But you can earn on all other qualifying AA
flights (and vice versa), e.g. I flew BA LHR
and then LAX
on American Eagle and earned all my points and miles fine. Had I flown AA LHR
, I'd have only earned on the LAX
I believe this is part of some anti-monopoly/trust restriction on their deepened cooperation. It is a long-standing thing.
