    Works great until you have one of AC's typical non-standard fare cklasses. Took me 45 minutes on hold with AC and AE to figure out how many miles I'd lose on Star carriers with AC's mystery codes.

    Thanks The Lev ... can you elaborate and give specifics on the classes?

    For travel to Singapore:
    AC L = NH K = 50% miles
    AC S = SQ S = 100% miles

    And I have several segments booked at AC Tango+ K-class on LH metal codeshares (AC flight numbers). Haven't a clue how AC K maps to LH since on AC K is still a mid-level economy fare while on LH it is now the lowest economy fare and earns no miles in any program since July. So while the listing is useful in a general sense, it still doesn't give us a true mapping from carrier to carrier.

    But still useful to have the latest version on my iPad/Pod for reference.

    On my recent LH flights I noticed that the LH/OS boarding passes have the fare class listed right on them. I'm not sure if it's possible to get the mapping from that, but here's what I see. The flight was FRA-PRG which is 254 miles according to gcmap.com

    AC Reservation LH Boarding Pass Miles Received
    Tango+ V V 500
    Tango+ S W 250

    Probably the oddest thing I noticed is that the fare class for my upgraded FRA-YUL flight was showing as R, yet my upgraded YUL-YHZ flight was showing as J. Perhaps this isn't a good way to map after all.
