    I'm looking at LHR-OTP fares and one option is TK-coded/9W-operated LHR-IST and then TK-coded/operated IST-OTP. Fare code is 'V' so I know the second leg will earn miles. How will the first one post? I have no clue how 'V' translates to a 9W flight. And I know Jet doesn't earn PQM so it may not be worth it.

    Anyone take this flight? How does it post?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    The 9W aircraft is leased by TK from Jet. The flight will work as if TK operated and it would earn you 100% of miles on UA in V class.

    Thanks for the reply!!

    I'm taking vacation. Have business in Europe for 10 days and then vacation for a week. Will visit RO & Hungary for the vacation. Been to OTP before but only on business and only for two days.
