How to get max elite miles by flying United K class?

I used to accumulate my miles with Singapore Airlienes when I flew United as SQ still gave 100% elite miles. Now they changed the policy, I only get 25% from SQ miles if I fly UA; but if I fly LH or ANA, I would get 0 miles.

Is there any other good ways I can max the miles while flying cheap?

Please Please Please help!! Thanks in advance.

But remember, it's just as much about burning as it is earning. If you earn 3x the miles on a flight with carrier X, is it 3x the cost to redeem? Or is it easier/harder to redeem? Just keep your eyes on both sides of the equation. Don't just buy South Korean Won because "it's 10,000!!".. it's only $9.
