I am taking a last minute flight on Emirates on Monday and I am unsure what loyalty program number I should use for my flight. I am United 1k, and I want to maximize my points (and EQM if possible) earned. I believe that I can use my United number, and that I will receive mileage credit (125% because it is a business class ticket), but I will not receive the normal 1k bonus or EQMs. Is this correct? I also see that Continental has a relationship with Emirates through March 25th, so that I could use a Continental number as well. Continental gives 150% on Emirates for business, and I am not sure about EQM. Does anyone know what the best move here, given the two airlines' relationship with Emirates, and also the rules for miles and EQM consolidation post merger?
