Royal Orchid Plus miles are earned according to paid booking class codes of the operating Star Alliance airline. These tickets will show the 2 letter/digit airline code, followed by a 2 or 3 digit flight number and can be purchased from the airline directly, a travel website or travel agent.
Codeshare flights among Star Alliance airlines also earn miles according to the paid booking class code. These tickets will show a 2 letter/digit airline code, followed by a 4 digit flight number, and can be purchased from the marketing carrier, travel website or travel agent.
In both cases discounted fares may not earn full miles, or may not be eligible for mileage accrual. Travel on a codeshare flight purchased from a marketing carrier and operated by another Star Alliance airline may not be eligible for mileage accrual.
Mileage credit is based on booking classes designated by an operating carrier only, which may be different from the booking classes when purchasing tickets with a marketing carrier.
