  1. @Wildtrail, the list differs from airline to airline, and hence it is prudent to check if your fareclass earns miles or not everytime you book. I will look for a table when I can.

  2. AJ…could you help me understand which fare class earns miles and which don’t. Does this differ from airline to airline ? Is there a handy table somewhere where this is listed for all major airlines ? Thank you.
