Pay with Miles (Delta) – Credit to Alaska
I’ve booked a trip for my boyfriend to join me on a business trip to Singapore on Delta using pay with miles (paying with miles was FAR less expensive than the outright award ticket – with better routing).
Since Delta is revenue based, he will only earn 600 redeemable miles + 18,000 MQMs… What happens if we credit his flight to Alaska instead? The booking class is V, so would he actually earn 9,000 redeemable miles on Alaska?
According to AS’s earning rules, he should. While he’d earn more miles on AS, would he eventually make use of the miles? I’d credit the miles to a program where you have an idea of what you’d like to redeem them for.
If you DO have planned use for AS miles, that is your best bet. Air France/KLM FlyingBlue only gets 25% of flown miles on a Delta V ticket and KE Skypass earns nothing.

Hey David – Thanks for the response – We live in an Alaska market and definitely have more use for Alaska miles than other SkyTeam members.
