Toastie has indicated that this thread is about United Kingdom

I've recently purchased a Global Explorer RTW ticket, which includes the members of the Oneworld alliance. I am interested to know if I can get airmiles for this ticket. Is there is one card that I can get to pick up airmiles for all the airlines or if I should get cards for each of the airlines I am flying with.

Does this make any sense or can anyone help me!?!?

Thanks.

What you should do is to check out each airline being a member of the oneworld alliance and then find out which of them you'd rather belong to. Then you should be able to earn points on no matter which airline within the alliance you're using. All the info on frequent flier programmes are available on the websites. Go to oneworld first then find the links and all the info you need..... I think :-))

Give it a try and post here if you need more information. I only checked Air Lingus not the rest. But this is the way it works with SAS and their partners, I've flown Lufthansa, SAS and Thai and still earned points to use for SAS operated flights.

best regards

Hi Toastie,

What Sole says is true and I have generally found that you are best off signing up with the airline that is the 'local' airline of where you live. If you are from the UK, that would be British Airways (I believe they are one world) etc. Not only will you get all the details etc. faster but mostly you will end up using them or their partners in the future as they tend to have a lot of flights from their 'national' hubs.

Hope this helps :)
