Earning Skypass miles on external award ticket

Hello all,

Can we earn Skypass miles on an award KE ticket booked on an external credit card travel program in Canada (either on the points value or the taxes paid in cash)?

A Skypass agent told me mileage accrual can happen only if such an award ticket is coded as a revenue one instead of an award one.

Neverthelss, I'm guessing it's a no, but need confirmation.

Thanks.

For example via AMEX Travel Program and instead of paying in cash using MR points?

Yes, for example: let's say I use 100,000 AMEX points and pay $300 in taxes to redeem a KE ticket.

Would I be able to earn Skypass miles on such a ticket (either the AMEX points portion, the taxes paid in cash portion, or both)?
