Best FFP for EK J flights

I have a number of upcoming business class flights with Emirates to India. Is Skywards the best program for earning miles/status, or do any of Emirate's partners have better FFPs?

With EK you will earn 175% miles if on flex, and 125% miles if on saver, as well as 50% gold bonus if you're flying frequently enough to get status.

That compares with only 125% on partners. Note that you can't earn miles on Jet and Kingfisher on flights between DXB-India. If you're flying with EK a lot, credit to Skywards. Otherwise you can't redeem for upgrades.

Having said that, I haven't looked into the partner programs in enough detail to compare earn/ burn ratios.
