    Can I use my points to book my partner's ticket while paying for mine? My goal would be for me to earn QMs while getting reduced fare for two.

    Thanks!

    I may be wrong but don't think you can do that in a single transaction if that's what you are asking. You can "Pay with Miles" to reduce out of pocket but neither of you will earn MQM in that case.

    You can definitely book an award ticket for someone else using your miles.

    You will have to be on separate reservations.

    My preferred method of doing this is to put the award on hold first, then book the paid ticket, then go back and book the award. That way you know everything syncs up. And also that buying one more paid ticket doesn't take the award out of inventory before you can grab it.
