    Seems BA ManageMyBooking can cope with BA codeshares on QF, but not JL codeshares on CX on the same booking. MMB says HKG-BNE as JL on CX metal in I (Discount J) earns 0 miles and 0 tier credits.

    Tried putting the HKG - BNE on JL in Business into to the Partner Earn calculator and also got double zero.

    The Partner earn table clearly says I on JL earns 125% of miles flown and BAEC Tier Credits (should be 240 for that sector).

    I suspect that MMB takes its data from the same database as feeds the calculator.

    I think it should be 120 Tier Points for that sector; 240 for a round trip.

    Assuming youre going via Tokyo, you need to enter the legs seperately: First HKG-NRT (or HND), then NRT/HND-BNE. That should give 40 TP for the first leg, and 120 for the second leg.

    As it says on the calculator page on ba.com:

    Thanks. No, I wasn't going via Tokyo. Just HKG-BNE on a JL codeshare on CX metal.

    Ah, sorry. Re-reading your post now, I notice that you mention that.

    You should anyway chose CX on the calculator, as they are the operating carrier.

    Not with BA. It is the ticketed carrier rather than the operating carrier that will govern the BA Miles and TPs for the flight. BA is unlike Star Alliance carriers in that respect.

    This is just a TP Calculator glitch, probably because it is an off-the-beaten-track route.
