    For my trip San Francisco to India, the United mileageplus mileage credit was not yet processed for the Lufthansa section of flight, but it was processed for the United sections. Has anyone else seen this ?

    I got the following response from Mileage Plus :

    In reviewing your flights from Los Angeles to Frankfurt to Bengaluru with Lufthansa, these flights were purchased on "K" booking classes. Lufthansa does not award MileagePlus® credit for this booking class for flights. We are sorry to disappoint you;MileagePlus credit will not be eligible for these flights.

    Each partner sets the booking classes that will be eligible in the MileagePlus program. These booking classes are subject to change by each partner.

    Please note that the booking class that appears on your passenger receipt or E-Ticket receipt may differ from the booking class that the operating airline uses to determine MileagePlus flight credit.

    All Economy class tickets are identified with the generic letter "Y" on the boarding pass, regardless of the actual booking class of the Economy fare that was purchased. Similarly, the identification letter on boarding passes for Business class is a "C" and First class is an "F". The letter identifies the cabin of the aircraft in which you are seated.

    For the most current classes of service, please visit United. Under “Earn Award Miles” in the MileagePlus tab, click on “Airline Partners”, then choose the partner airline from the list.

    We realize that this can be very confusing, especially when it comes to earning miles. We hope that we have been able to fully explain your partner credit. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mileage Plus

    It was processed. The ticket you purchased was in a fare class which does not earn any credit in the MileagePlus program. And that's what the email is explaining to you.
