    I am flying business class in Qatar Airways from Bangalore (India) to Gatwick and was wondering which was the best program to bank my miles. It seems Qatar has high surcharges. I was thinking about JMB since they are starting a daily service from Bangalore to Tokyo in a few months and it could help me plan a trip. But JMB is not partners with Amex rewards or citi premier miles cards which i use.
    What do you suggest?

    With Qatar being a OneWorld airline, if its me, I would pick my favorite/most advantageous OW carrier.

    What @RTBones suggested - your favorite or the most advantageous to use OneWorld carrier. Looks like you are based in Bangalore - perhaps BA? BA is an AMEX MR partner. But BA also has surcharges on awards. JAL is starting flights to Bangalore in summer 2020.

    BA is good for getting status, but not so good when it comes to redeeming for long-haul flights since their award charts is distance based.

    Great if you live in a Oneworld hub or connecting thru one is your best option. Especially for short, but expensive flights in Y.
