    I am Lufthansa star alliance member.
    As one of the members of it, can I claim mileage for flights from Tel -Aviv to Hong-Kong by Cathay Pacific?

    How can I claim also for mileage for flights from Taipei to Hong-Kong and Shanghai to Hong-Kong (bout by Cathay Pacific)?

    Do you know the fare class you booked? I would go to and see who would give you the most mileage

    LH & CX's partnership is somewhat specific - you can only credit and earn miles on specific routes that are part of the partnership. Per the M&M website, you can only earn miles on the following CX operated flights:

    Hong Kong - Auckland, New Zealand in both directions
    Hong Kong - Cairns, Australia in both directions
    Hong Kong - Melbourne, Australia in both directions
    Hong Kong - Sydney, Australia in both directions

    I'm sort of surprised that CX operated flights from HKG to FRA/DUS/ZRH wont earn miles with M&M, but I guess that's just a way to keep members flying LH Group airlines instead.
