WP question, DL Coded, AZ (Alitalia) Operated...

Booking a RT nonstop BOS - FCO on DL (8130, 8129) which is operated by Alitalia (AZ 615, 614), all booking class U...This will be booked on Delta.com... so the question..

On Delta, using Skymiles, I realized that there would not be an MQM's in the U fare...

However, using my WP number, will it be seen/credited by NWA as a Delta U fare or a Alitalia U fare?

I was confused (on NWA's WP site) by the line under the DL section that read, "Elite Qualifying Fare Classes (or codeshare equivalent) on Delta-coded, Delta-operated flights (except where noted)" The "except where noted" was causing me confusion.

Seeing as how U is not even listed in the Alitalia section, I'm guessing that an Alitalia U would = zilch zero nada...is this correct?

If the consensus is I'd get nothing, I'l book on the all delta metal via JFK (which adds a loonngg layover)...

Let me know what you think...Thanks very much for the help. I will be calling the WP office tomorrow morning, but I also wanted first hand experience.

If it appears as a DL codeshare U fare, then it's DL U, not AZ U. I don't know what the AZ equivalent of a DL U fare is; you could try calling DL but I wouldn't count on the CSA knowing the answer to that question.

If the flight is DL-numbered, operated by Alitalia, it is MQM-earning in DL SkyMiles as a Ufare.
