Do LifeMiles award redemption tickets earn miles from flying?

Hi All,

I’ve just booked a flight from Sydney to Paris with lifemiles.  Does anyone know if I can accrue miles for the flying? and if, what is the best value ff program for this?

Because you have booked a reward seat you will not be able to accrue any miles for the flight.

You can only earn miles on flights you pay for.

Looks like it worked for you! Congrats.

But yes, unfortunately these are award seats and it won’t accrue any miles for you (you literally paid 1/3 of the cost so can’t have everything!), that said, I still put my FFP number with another star alliance program. You never know, some day they may make a mistake and you get your miles accrued. So far it hasn’t happen to me yet…
