    You guys should do a primer on how to drag with frequent flyer.

    I am currently dealing with a situation where I booked with United, flew on air new Zealand and trying to credit to Turkish.

    The fare class is L. I get 75% on Turkish using United charts and 0% with air new Zealand chart. Star alliance apparently uses the operating carrier. Needless to say I am unhappy cuz I can try getting status on star alliance. I paid money to United. I booked in their website i don’t care how they deal with these stupid code shares.

    I think you should have a comprehensive primer for all alliances and how these FF programs work.

    @Someone – Star Alliance has the most complex fare crediting rules when it comes to codeshares. It is based on the operating carrier — in your instance, the L fare was through United. However, the underlying fare class for Air NZ is difficult to find without a lot of playing around. Very complex problem. Oneworld and SkyTeam is a lot easier as it is the marketing carrier.
