Delta Premium Select mileage accrual on KLM Ticketed and coded flights

I recently flew Delta Premium Select (AMS-DTW) on a ticket I bought from KLM on KL coded DL operated flights. I was excited to get the 50% mqm bonus, but it has only shown up as normal mileage. Has anyone had experience with this? Any suggestions on getting it corrected?

Thanks in advance.

What was fare class?
I don't see a PE listed for KLM in the partner earning chart on Delta website

I believe it is a KL "A" fare.

A is 100% MQM and MQD = to 10% of mileage according to the chart.
Is that what you got for MQD?

It is what I got, but it also lists it as Discounted economy not a premium select or premium economy like you might find on AF.

KLM class A is list as discounted economy and earns 100% according to the linked chart.

Did it seem to be a discounted PS fare, perhaps nonrefundable?

It's likely typo and should be discounted premium economy. I know for AF this has been the case.

They updated the AF mileage earning chart some time ago to reflect that AF W,S,A fares are now Premium Economy and earn 50% MQM bonus. KL mileage earning charts have yet to be updated even though KL is now selling W,S,A PE fares on partner metal.
