    Looking at some transpacific flights that go through NRT and onto HKG.

    First leg is UA metal/UA flight #, connecting leg from NRT to HKG is on ANA metal/UA codeshare flight #.

    According to the MP webpage for ANA (and as a result of the JV signed by UACO and ANA), Discount Economy now gets 100% RDM/EQM for:

    TRANSPACIFIC, INTRA-JAPAN WITH INTERNATIONAL CONNECTION AND INTRA-ASIA FLIGHTS (NOT INCLUDING FLIGHTS BETWEEN JAPAN AND AUSTRALIA, CHINA, INDIA, OR KOREA)

    And all other flights earn 70% RDM/EQM for discounted economy.

    So I am not clear whether I would get the 100% RDM/EQM on the NRT-HKG ANA flight or 70% RDM/EQM considering that HKG does not equal China and I am connecting.

    Thanks in advance for any clarification on the earnings.

    I'm 99% sure that HKG is included in the JV and is not "China" in this context.

    Ok. That jives with what I read on the other boards.

    What is throwing me off is that on CO.com, it shows the ANA metal flights as 70% EQM.

    CO.com is horrible at showing partner earning rates in their reservations booking and review interfaces. It is wrong about as often as it is correct.

    HKG is 100% included in the JV and you will earn 100% EQM and all appropriate bonus miles for your elite level as well.

    I flew NRT->HKG on NH909 in Economy a few weeks ago and got 1807 EQMs along with the expected Premier Exec RDM bonus.

    Thanks all. I too can now confirm too that you get 100% EQM and RDM credit. And the miles were posted within a day or two of the flights.
