    Do we get bonus award miles in Lufthansa/Swiss/Air Canada ? I am booking on united.com and current status is 1K.

    Thank you,

    Yes. The bonus RDMs are issued for travel on most partner flights where UA has a joint venture arrangement. That includes AC, OS, SN, LH, LX & NH (only some destinations count).

    Nope. No way to earn UA miles on US metal anymore.

    LAX-ORD-LHR : used my GU but did not get upgraded and got credit back.
    LHR-FRA-BOM segment was with Lufthansa , however FRA-BOM got CU !
    I was told that Lufthansa need certificate for GU but how I got complimentary upgraded?

    LH does not offer complimentary upgrades even to their own elites.

    Your FRA BOM flight might have been oversold in economy so LH operationally upgraded you to business class to create space in economy for other passengers.

    It is always great to here of a UA Star partner providing an operational upgrade, most likely due to economy being oversold.
