Mileage run using Delta awards

Need $3K MQD to remain Platinum. Found Delta roundtrip business class award flight Fromm NYC to London for 365,000 miles. I thought award flights gave 10% as MQD and actual MQM, but its saying that I'll only earn:

1,431 MQMs
$309 MQDs

What's up?

What's the full routing, and are all the flights DL-operated? Those are the only ones that count for MQMs/MQDs when booking with Skymiles.

Ahh, that is it. While I found the flight on the Delta website, it is a Virgin Atlantic flight. Thanks for clearing that up for me before I wasted the miles.
