rebook Delta One to China Eastern business-higher MQDs?
 
Currently booked today one way SJC-SEA-PVG for $276 and used GUC to upgrade to Delta One. SEA-PVG is delayed.

Alternate flights is nonstop SFO-PVG in business on China Eastern

If I chose this will I get higher MQDs for flying partner airline based on distance or original Delta MQDs since they know how much I paid for the ticket?

It depends if it use the MU or DL codeshare number.

You'll earn based on distance and not $ for that flight.

Yeah, I would be all over that. You paid for a coach fare and you'll get MQDs based on 40% of the distance flown. Just make sure it actually books into business.

If this works out, ~$2460 MQD for a $276 ticket + a GUC would be a nice outcome for you!

Delta Twitter: Unfortunately, please kindly note the Global certificates only apply to Delta operated flights, so it would not be eligible on the MU flight

DL Twitter is technically correct but if the IRROPs booking engine will place you into MU J, there's no GUC to apply. It appears to be treating you as a displaced J passenger (which is appropriate since your GUC has already cleared). No different than approaching the counter if the flight was canceled or delayed and having them move you to MU but honoring the GUC cleared instead of downgrading you.

Just make certain that when you click through it is actually booking you into Business since it has major caveats about being a different class of service (presumably being flagged since the system sees "Business" as a different parameter than "Delta One")

Dont call, use the rebooking tool. If you had done that you'd been rebooked in seconds. I'm not sure why some are scared of using it. DL provides it for this very reason. It's also programmed to follow actual policy, not what agent "knows" to be correct.

Also they're incorrect when it comes to IRROPS.

Likely coded with the GUC fare code (OU or something like that) and not J.
The reason you wouldn't have earned the MQM D1 bonus had you flown DL.
Before the days of auto-rebooking, an agent might have been able to force it through the way VDBs into FC often got recoded as F.
