    I'm in transit to Beijing via the AA mistake fare. I missed my connection in Chicago due to an AA maintaince issue. They rerouted me through LHR on British Airways.





    I am crediting all miles to Alaska as I am MVP Gold so get a 100% bonus.

    I'm in transit to Beijing via the AA mistake fare. I missed my connection in Chicago due to an AA maintaince issue. They rerouted me through LHR on British Airways "World Club" business class. My ticket says fare "J" but I'm not sure if that means the fare class or just shorthand for business class. How does the AA fare class translate when AA sticks me on a BA flight?

    IF I'm correct, I get the Alaska miles for the actual flights flown, which are now much farther (going east). Additionally, for "J" fares on BA, Alaska says it awards 150% bonus. This is in addition to my 100% bonus for being MVP gold. Am I thinking about this right?

    In more general terms, will I get full fare business mileage credit for a partner flight AA put me on due to maintenance issues (this was on a $20 AA mistake fare to begin with).

    THANKS!
