    Just a quick technical question – Just about to book a flight on American Airlines metal with a Finnair flight number using Expedia in J.

    Will I get credit for Avios and Tier Points for BA using my Executive Club Card.

    I realize that I would get Avios and Tier points on a AA flight booked on AA or BA but I though it wise just to check that as it is a Finnair codeshare but on AA metal I have added to many variables.

    I do not have Finnair or AA loyalty

    Many thanks

    I stand to be corrected but in the past I recall , not me but colleagues, were penalised on points awards because the booking was through an OTA in this case Expedia. It was a while ago but it adds to your variables

    According to the BA website you should receive tier points and avios on a flight booked with a one world partner using another world partner for a code share.

    That could be because the OTA sold a consolidator fare that had no bens attached, but it is normally not the case.
