Thanks for the response BA-IHG, that’s very useful. I suppose I was aware that alliances share a certain amount of revenue but never thought of it that way. I realise that you’d wouldn’t go anywhere if you had to be certain your cash would only go where you want it to.

I realise I’ve been vague as I’d rather not name names, so here’s a hypothetical:

Let’s say I hate BA with a passion (I don’t). I have a load of Avios in a Finnair account. I want to fly Aerlingus from Dublin to the USA. If I transfer my avios to and book via a BAEC account does BA benefit from that purchase? If on the other hand it’s Aerlingus I hate (I don’t) but not BA, it sounds from the answers on here that AL will benefit a least a portion, is that the case?
