AA CLE-LGA-CLE in G outbound and Q inbound
AA Platinum Pro benefits end mid-trip

Should I just credit entirely to AA 9ppd outbound and 5ppd inbound (will that happen because I'm losing Platinum Pro?) or credit to AS as I'm MVP Gold 75k?

Hi I flew qr airlines around a month ago and credited my mileage to aa . I received a email saying I credited it to qr so there's denying it even though my tickets I sent have my aa number. Any advice?

He's not talking about maintaining status. He does not have enough for that. Those statuses were from promotions.

Newbie here and I have read a bunch of this thread, but could use some help.

I am looking to book NYC-SIN on Korean Air in Prestige Class (R fare booking class).

Should I book this via Delta.com or is it better to book via Korean Air and credit to Delta? I am a Delta Gold Medallion and looked at wheretocredit.com but I dont really understand the difference. Also, can I earn MQMs this way or is this only about the redeemable miles?

Thanks!

You can purchase it at either place, but IMO credit to Delta for the following reasons:
-You will get 200% miles
-You will earn an additional 60% miles due to status
-You will obtain MQM & 40% MQD

The only downside is that you'll end up with Skymiles which are not as valuable, but have been climbing lately.

Are you trying to get status or miles from another Skyteam partner?

Thanks. Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong, but I want Delta status. This trip will get me to Platinum and a Japan trip later this year will get close to Diamond. I fly Delta all the time for work, but a lot of short hops. Higher status is great. The MQD might be an issue though...

At about 5k I'd be getting about 45k miles if I book via delta. Not sure what I'd get if i book Korean and credit to delta.

I really am new to this - can anyone help me with my analysis? I am flying NYC-SIN via ICN on Korean Air in Business Class (Prestige Class R) and I can book on Korean's site and credit to Delta or book direct on Delta's website.

a) NYC-SIN is 9,529 miles on Great Circle Mapper.
b) I am a Delta Gold Medallion so there is a status bonus
c) The flight costs $5,157

If I book on Korean, I think I would earn:
Miles - 49,550 (9,529 x 2 x 260%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x (100% base + 100% class bonus + 60% status bonus)
MQD - $7,623 (9,529 x 2 x 40%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x partner MQD %
MQM - 28,587 (9,529 x 2 x 150%) - mileage flown x 2 ways x partner MQM %

If I book on Delta.com, they estimate my earning as:
Miles - 40,320
MQD - $5,040
MQM - 29,326

It looks like I would earn more redeemable miles, more MQDs but slightly fewer MQMs if I book on Korean.
Does this analysis look correct? Appreciate any help - I am trying

Can anyone help? I would like to book this and am told there shouldn't be any difference between Delta and Korean on this but that doesnt seem right.
