    Hello. I have ended with a Korean air code share booking that will use a JAL flight from Tokyo then an Emirates flight to Dubai. Emirates is in 1st class, JAL economy. I then have a Cathay business flight to Bahrain booked as Cathay. Can you advise if I can claim JAL Mileage for all flights or need to use Emirates and/or join the Korean air program?

    I want to clarify to be sure we understand your flights.

    Ticket #1 = US (?) to Tokyo JAL economy connecting to Emirates F to Dubai. This was purchased via Korean Air.

    Ticket #2 = ?? to Bahrain on Cathay booked via Cathay.

    If that's correct then you should be able to use your JAL number on both tickets for all segments.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The JAL flight is Tokyo to Seoul but Korean ticketed as is the Seoul to Dubai but an Emirates plane. Cathay is a cathay ticket. The return is Emirates 1st class Bahrain to Dubai (Emirates flight) then same back to Seoul (1st class Emirates plane) and Tokyo (Korean Air) being a Korean airlines ticketed flight. So if the JAL mileage best to use then great and/or Emirates.

    I would check wheretocredit based on the airline you are flying and class of service to see options for crediting the miles.

    Agreed so have ensured all frequent flyer program are joined. Bit frustrating flying Emirates 1st class and cannot even get my seats assigned as a code share with Korean. In reality assigning to Korean could be the better option as no one can confirm I can credit your JAL.
