As noted above, you will earn about 9K MQDs on the VS flights even though you are only paying $6K dollars for the flights.
Likewise for the AF/KL option. Pay $3400, earn 8200 MQDs.

@tanglin - just make sure you enter your SkyMiles number when booking, make sure it's printed on your boarding pass and keep copies of the boarding pass until they post.
