Kenyan Airlines O-Class Business fares, mileage on Delta?
 
I'm seeing 0-Class discounted business fares on Kenyan, for example fare class OPR28US.

O does not appear in the SkyTeam mileage charts.

Anyone have any idea of mileage, MQM accrual rates for Delta?

TIA.

What is a Skyteam mileage chart? DL uses a different earnings chart for all airlines.

O only recently started earning on AF/KL. Before late last year it was strictly used for awards. Now it can be used for both. It's possible they haven't updated the KQ earnings table.

The Kenyan Airlines section.

OP updated.

Officially the rule is that if the fare class doesn't appear on DL's mileage earning list for that carrier, then you get nothing.

O has been somewhat of a special case here because it now officially does earn on AF/KLM since it's used for discounted business class as well as award business class. One can argue that previously the rule was a mistake (and PAID O class always should have been treated like other discounted business class fares) for AF/KLM and since KQ is a close partner of AF/KLM in terms of the FB FF program, maybe DL really means for paid O on KQ to also earn miles.

YMMV.

If it's not in the chart assume no mileage.

Believe there are some P fares for discount biz in *A that are treated this way by some *A carriers

When they started giving credit for AF/KL O they only updated the KLM page. AF still didnt list O as earning. This doesn't mean that it will earn if not listed. However O not being also doesn't necessarily mean it won't.
