Best Way to Earn Miles for None US Delta Member

I'm wondering did anyone compare what's the best way to earn miles for none US Delta member ?
I was doing some calculation myself yesterday and it seems that if the round trip flight ticket is below 462 (tax include) for RT between ATL and SEA, purchasing AS flight tickets seem to earn slightly more miles than DL ticket.
Anyone has further insight for getting around on this especially intl travel ?

Under the 2015 Skymiles rules, you'll earn more miles the more $$ you spend.
On a cheap transcon with no DL status, you'd probably do better on AS.

Be careful to make sure that the class of service you're booking on AS earns 100% miles. They have a lot of fare classes that earn only 75% or 50% miles.
