Help: Earning MQM on partner Xiamen Airlines in S

Hi, before I book a ticket, I知 looking for a little confirmation on how MQM痴 are earned on partner airlines. For background, I no longer have any status with Delta after being Diamond for many years, but I知 less than 30K MQM from million miler.
There are lots of flights later this year from JFK to several destinations in China using Xiamen airlines is coach (S) class for under $600. Do these earn MQM痴 or is this a fare that won稚 count?
Thanks.

Thanks. I read this, but I just want to make sure I知 not missing something (and I知 not a lawyer, lol).
If these flights were booked directly on Xiamen, is that a Skyteam marketed flight?? I知 just a bit confused. Thanks for the help.

The IATA code for Xiamen is MF. If the flight number starts with MF, then that flight is "marketed" by Xiamen and if credited to DL, the Xiamen SkyMiles earning chart would apply.

Thank you for the help. Just so I'm clear (and please forgive me), by credited to Delta, you mean just putting your Skymiles number in during the booking, correct?

Yes, exactly. The DL MQM and mileage charts only apply to flights that are credited to the DL Skymiles program.

Thank you for your help. I think Delta may have an issue with the MF "S" class. But I may have found a Delta metal solution to this problem as well. Thanks again.

Make sure to double check that your skymiles number is on the reservation at checkin and is physically printed on the boarding passes. Keep your boarding passes until the miles actually credit. This may take a few weeks. When I fled Xiamen last year, only 3 of my 4 segments credited so I had to send them a copy of the boarding pass that didnt credit.
