Well you will have to join another loyalty program if you want to receive credit.

You would earn about 5,890 Alaskan Miles.

Airline: UA
From: EWR
To: TLV
Fare Class booked in: L

Based on reading here my understanding is SQ gives 100% and UA less than half that based on cost, so SQ is the obvious choice.

What about for little kids, to get more miles into the SQ account to have enough to fly am thinking I'll need to transfer from MR which means getting a card in their name? Is there another way?

I credited my kids to SQ. Can one transfer Chase UR or Citi Thank You points to kids SQ accounts?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
