    I personally doubt it, but I think that it's well worth a shot to ask. Can I elect to have miles added to different programs from one itinerary? That is for either having a diferent FF program on different sectors or different FF program each way? I know I could get 1 itinerary each way but this is usually more expensive for international flights I believe, up to 20% more expensive.

    It can be done. Theoretically the agent can use a /s parameter in Amadeus to associate a number with a sector, but as I have said before, the risks are high that it will not be done properly and that the points will end up in the wrong place

    If you really want to do one way to one scheme and the other to another, then as mentioned, have the 1st FF number in for the outbound, then get it removed using the method mentioned and then add the other

    Thanks so much

    When using checkmytrip - What airlines can it be used for? And can you look up completed trips too? I've never had a look, and I have some bookings both from the past and for the future but they don't work :mad:
    Most of them are domestic DJ and QF

    It can be used for current bookings for airlines which use Amadeus. This includes BA,QF,LA and IB at least within OneWorld

    You can't change past trips. Only current or future ones.

    Safest is to not have any FF number entered at all and claim missing mileage credit for the flights you want to go to the applicable FFPs.

    More risky, especially in some remote locations where contract check in staff are used, is to have one FFP against the booking and change the relevant flight(s) when you check in.
