Delta + Matrix + Powertools = VN Booking on Delta.com

I just made a "backdoor" booking on Delta.com for an all-VN itinerary HKG-SGN-DAD. This was done by searching the flights in Matrix and then using Powertools to book it on the site. Does anyone see this presenting a problem down the line? I needed to book it like this as I wanted to burn an eCredit that I had and also liked the fact that I'll get some MQMs out of the deal.

The only thing to worry about is the use of the E-Credit - I've had trouble with legs being mysteriously cancelled when the fare basis is not DL.

I don't foresee any issues, though of course YMMV

There's no 500-MQM minimum on VN segments?

Not sure - I need to do some napkin math but will definitely be keeping that screenshot handy.

Shouldn't be an issue, I've used powertools to book a combination of DL+PR before because I couldn't get it to pull up on DL.com page.
