Earning miles on SWISS

Jump to last reply

There is a thread on flyertalk about new rules for earning United miles on Swiss flights. DH and I will earn our miles just fine, on our upcoming ORD-ZRH-ORD flights. DS, on the other hand, might not earn his. He is booked in "K" fare (we are in "S" fare), and new rules say that K fares do not earn EQMs. Rules changed near end of September. DS's ticket was purchased on UA site a month before rules change. He is depending on these miles to make 1K in 2011.

Wondering if anyone here has had experience with Swiss K fares earning miles since new rules have taken effect. You would hope that people who bought tickets before rule changes would be grandfathered in.... but who knows! Deceptive practice for sure!

Thanks.
