I just advised a friend who is going on Birthright with LX to credit his miles to UA, he tell me that Birthright does not allow to for people to have their miles credited to their accounts, is this a joke or something? I doubt Birthright uses some kind of promotional deals with with airlines? maybe with LY?.
Birthright or not birthright every ticket is booked into a fare-class and each fare class has earning rates ranging from 0 to 300% depending on the airline. Just check the fare-class and work from there.

It's false. I flew LX with birthright last year, and while it's definitely a very restricted fare class, and apparently a specially negotiated fare, it does still earn. See photo below with my account activity.

Airline: DL
From: JFK
To: KEF
Fare Class booked in: T, U

As a plat, DL will give me ~5k, while AS ~2.8k. Considering this will be my only flight under this DL FFN, I'm leaning towards AS, as 5k DL sitting in an abandoned account won't do me any good.

Here's my question: the flight wasn't booked from the DL account; the DL FFN was added later. If I now put in my AS number instead, will the plat benefits disappear, or the PNR will still show as a plat account?

Or is all this not worth it and just credit to DL...

Will not get plat benefits, change the FFN to AS at the gate after you're upgraded etc.
