Elite Mileage Bonus Question

Tried a search, but came up empty -- with the elite mileage bonue (e.g. 50% for Silvers), does that apply to NWA flights only, NW & SkyTeam, or NWA and all Partners?

Going to be taking some Jet Airways flights over the next 4 months, trying to decide whether to make a run for Silver before going, currently at 19k. Jet Airways doesn't give EQM, so I'd have to qualify before I leave...

Thanks in advance

Page 8 says bonus applies on "participating airline partners."

Thanks -- I saw that -- I guess my question is what does the word "participating" mean in that context -- is it:

a. any partner who "participates" in mileage awarding?

or

b. any partner who "participates" in awarding elite bonuses?

On the nwa.com elite page (accesible only to elites), it says the following:

Automatic Elite Mileage Bonus every time you fly 50% 100% 125%

The "every time you fly" part might answer your question. Though, I would call WPs just to make sure, seeing how I've never flown Jet Airways.

Edited for clarity: Mileage bonuses vary from airline to airline, however. For example, Plats flying DL will only receive a 100% bonus as opposed to the 125% listed above.

I was recently only given a 25% SE bonus when flying on a NW/Delta codeshare segment, on Delta metal. (Class flown = Y, class paid = K).

And that is all you were entitled to.
