    Fact: my mother is flying from Europe to Australia (and back, hopefully) with Emirates, I am buying her a ticket, and she will do some 18000 miles in Economy (not full coach, some kind of restricted fare)...

    Problem: I would like to sign her into a frequent flyer program, that gives 100% for Emirates miles accumulation, and also allows to redeem those miles to other (airline, hotel) programs... like United, Carlsson, Hilton or Hyatt...where I am a member :D

    Does anybody have an idea which program I should use?

    are you tied to emirates? while they announced an alliance with Qantas in 9/2012, they aren't part of one of the big three alliances...someone more experienced may have better advice. not sure how long the emirates/qantas alliance would take to solidify either.
