SIN is as well, along with an origin at LGA ( which gives you a few more miles because they'll route you to ATL or DTW before going over the Atlantic )

Anyone wanting to earn Delta miles is going to want to book the AF or KL codes as those will earn lots more MQDs and redeemable miles than the Delta codes on this route.

I was able to create some nice routings, for example JFK-LAX-CDG-AMS-HKG and similar returns for around $400 more (US$ 2,760) for those interested.

OP used Travelocity (see URL), but can also be found with Google Flights. Note the requirements. 7-day min stay makes it more of a good deal fare, than a pure MR.

OUTBOUND - PERMITTED MON THROUGH THU. INBOUND - PERMITTED SUN THROUGH WED ON THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL SECTOR.
RESERVATIONS FOR ALL SECTORS ARE REQUIRED AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE DEPARTURE.
TRAVEL FROM INBOUND TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR MUST COMMENCE NO EARLIER THAN 7 DAYS AFTER DEPARTURE OF THE OUTBOUND TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.
TICKETS MUST BE ISSUED ON/BEFORE 17JUL 18.

I guess this is similar to this recent thread; that fare expired (when it said it would)
AF/KL: NYC/ORD-DPS/KUL/SIN/HKG $2400 usd

Business class on AF (and I suppose KL) earns MQDs at the rate of 40% of miles flown.
https://www.delta.com/content/www/en...-partners.html

NYC-CDG-HKG is 19,200 miles r/t, so you earn about 7,680 MQDs. If this was a DL-marketed flight, you'd earn only about 2,200 MQDs.

Similarly, you earn 200% redeemable miles on AF flights in business (before elite bonuses), so that's 38,400 miles. At a 5x multiplier of the fare, you'd only earn 11,000 miles.

Darn, I wish the fare to DPS (ZNVL57D2) did not have 50 day advanced reservation restriction. It would make it possible to fly in August. This way, the earliest date is Sept 3.

And just so no one wastes time with Amex IAP: JFK-AMS-DPS routing does not qualify for the IAP discount. I checked with them a few minutes ago.
