Bonus miles on SQ for Silver Medallion?

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here ... nice to meet everyone!

I am silver medallion on Delta. I have an upcoming flight on SQ on coach (Y class fare). Will I earn bonus miles? I know that I won't earn any MQMs. I am trying to decide whether to put this flight to my Delta or my United account. I have no elite status with UAL. Also, I assume because SQ is not a Sky Team member, my Delta medallion won't get me access to SQ airport lounges (even though I can earn miles on Delta with this flight), right?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome to FlyerTalk, ngodeia!

Silver Medallion won't even get you lounge access when flying on Delta or a SkyTeam carrier, never mind SQ. Plats get lounge access on international SkyTeam in Y, but not on SQ.

No bonus miles either on SQ for Silver Medallions.

You're probably best off depositing your miles to UA if you have a chance of making the first level of status, unless you really wanting to rack up the additional redeemable SkyMiles.

Thanks MegatopLover!

That's what I thought. I'll put the miles into my UA account, which has a higher balance anyway.
