Had award travel in late February. Used Delta miles to buy flights. Delta mainline & Delta Connection operated. Earned both MQD and Million Miler miles on it.

Just to clarify, Skymiles award flights earn no redeemable miles and will show 0 miles earned in your account activity listing. This does not mean they earn no MM miles. MM mileage deposits will not show in account activity. If you want to track it, you will have to do it manually.

I've flown twice this year on Delta metal with Delta miles - got MM miles both times.

How did you check for MM credit? It won't show in your account history (the only way to see it is if you take before and after snapshots of your MM balance).

DL has good program MM

They will small ceremony when someone get MM status and small gift. Moreover, MM choice gift is good program. Maybe choose $1000 gift card no expiration other than DL souvenir things?

I thought we had a thread on this but now I can't find it. Apologies if I'm in the wrong place here.

If I purchase a KLM flight on KLM's website on KLM metal and put my Delta # in, will I get MM credit for actual miles flown?

I know I'll get a puny amount of RDMs for it.

Yes. There are several examples of partner flown miles posting as MM this year -- https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/35980994-post66.html

Sorry if this is redundant, but based on several short segments in 2024 (all within the US), the posted Million Miler credit has been actual air miles regardless of whether the segment is under/over 500 miles.

Yep, the fact that MM mileage flight credits now have no minimums has already been mentioned a number of times on FT. On the plus side, there are reports el-cheapo partner fares seem to be posting with 100% miles flown MM mileage credit even though they only earn a percentage of miles flown towards RDM credit.
