Based on the fact that Delta sold you the ticket on Delta stock (006), this page:

https://www.delta.com/content/www/en...a.html/#flight

indicates that you'll get credit based on Delta's earnings chart, not the partner chart.

You may get more value from VS or the FB program.

Hmmm...mine booked into Z. Looks like yours maybe hasn't fully ticketed yet. Did you check back a few hours later? I verified 3 times with Delta that mine would earn 27,000+ FF miles.

Multiple cities to BOM

Just a heads up that I found many dates and cities to BOM that work. I am a United guy and am actually able to find AUS-EWR-BOM for $5200 total for two people with a stay at a 5 star hotel (I need this for one night). Incredible pricing. I saw many days that have SkyTeam tickets but it does take a lot of time to mess around with dates to find things.

I am not going until Jan 2020 so I am holding out hope this is available when I can book.

I searched the following cities

Austin
DFW
IAH
DEN
SFO

To BOM random days in September, October, and December with a 15 to 20 day trip. Skyteam flights can drive this down from $5200 to $4700 or so. The one below is going through Munich because I forgot which days were Austin EWR BOM

As someone else has pointed out these are supposed to be Exception Fares and Delta has a different chart. I pressed the trigger on it and will see what DL comes up with.

No 200% for DL marketed 006 codeshare partner flights!

I flew two segments on Jet and one on KL all on a DL marketed ticket on DL stock. Pulled the trigger and submitted an online credit form and it's not good news, only 5595 miiles. Good if all you are after is MQMs. Also, no Gold Medallion bonus seems to have posted.

CMB TO BOM
MQMs 16,028 MQSs 3 MQDs $1,119
BASE MILES 5,595
BONUS MILES -- NOT APPLICABLE

TOTAL MILES
CMB TO BOM 1,419 1 $99 495 Reward Method R
Delta Air Lines 50% MQM Bonus BONUS MQMs 473

BOM TO AMS
6,399 1 $447 2,235 Reward Method R
Delta Air Lines 50% MQM Bonus BONUS MQMs 2,133

AMS TO SFO
8,210 1 $573 2,865 Reward Method R
Delta Air Lines 50% MQM Bonus BONUS MQMs 2,737

Reward Method "R = Mileage earned based on ticket price"

i think so. It's a KLM flight but i fly no KLM metal on it. I fly the new 777 with SkySuites from ATL-CDG and AF to India. Fly Joon back to Paris and then Delta back to US. I confirmed 3 times with the Delta agents and all said the same thing: 27,000+ fare. Delta calls this a "bulk fare". That's what each agent told me.

Probably because it was purchased as DL flight numbers.

To maximize DL RDM earnings with partners it is usually best to book with partner marketed flight #s , not Delta ones

Delta's own flight numbers are calculated using miles per dollar spent, which is what they seem to have applied to your case, unfortunately

This means that Expedia or whomever you bought it from didn't sell a published fare of the airline. They simply bought seats in bulk from the airline and then sold them at whatever price they wanted. You can tell it's a bulk fare when you pull up the receipt online at Delta. It won't show a fare amount. Bulk fares only effect earnings on DL marketed flights.

If this was a published fare and crediting to DL then earnings are quite simple. You earn based on marketing carrier code (the two letters before the flight number). However non-DL marketed flights must be operated by a Skyteam partner to get credit. Thus a 9W operated flight marketed as DL or 9W gets credit, the same flight marketed as any other carrier, including AF/KL, gets no credit. In the latter, 9W isn't Skyteam, thus it doesn't meet that requirement for partner marketed flights.

BTW, The ticketing carrier no longer matters for DL Skymiles. It can be issued on DL 006, KL 074 or UA 012 stock and earnings wont change.
