As coudntthinkofaname says – there is confusion between TPs and Miles. The latter are the ones where a bonus is given on BA and through JVs such as AA/IB and JAL. The other anomaly is that BA also award more miles on the cabin bonus (eg 200% in F, whereas other carriers only get 150%)

TPs however, are consistent across the programme. Some carriers are a bit mean on the lowest economy fare, but in business its consistent. You will get the same TPs on MH as you would on BA

Im not sure you can compare the QF programme – do they use Tier Points? I thought that was a quirk of BA, and every other programme just tracks status miles?
