UA K & L (Discount Economy (%50 for most airlines or 5 times for United.) About 1000 Total for the ticket. Bangkok to NYC then LAX To BKK (Over 14,000 miles I believe). No status.

Where should I credit it please? Is Singapore worth (%100 miles credit? Is there another airline I should look into?)

I can choose between the following:
1171 Delta miles
1074 Alaskan miles
1341 Virgin Atlantic miles

I currently have 500 VA and zero of everything else.

Should I take Delta, although they're not worth so much, because it's the one that I will most likely have enough some day for some reward ticket?
If you are collecting AS that's definitely the way to go

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?

To rehash, someone upthread said I might be able to transfer TYP if last name is the same. It didnt work for me.

Chase, I see only ability to transfer to spouse, not kids. So then I will have about 10k SQ points in kids accounts, not sure what I could do with them. I think minimum for one way in US is 12.5 k. Any thoughts?

You can transfer Amex to them, just add them as an authorized user.

You missed out Ukranian as an option to credit KLM flights.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

either call united and tell them you want to credit the flight to SQ and give them your SQ # or do it at the airport
