    We’re often asked how many miles and Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) will be earned when flying with our airline partners. Or, why different partners offer different mileage amounts. So, we thought we would take this opportunity to clarify benefits across our airline partners.

    In short, we have 25+ partners, and each airline determines its level of participation. This leads to varying levels of customer rewards when flying with our partners. So, we’ve created a new mileage earning chart — effective for travel on and after September 1, 2013 — that organizes our partner airlines into four groups. Now, you can quickly see an overview of the miles and bonuses you will earn in each group.

    The chart also includes a few modifications to previous mileage earning rates, providing you more miles with some partners and potentially less with others. For example, you will generally earn more base miles on Aeromexico and Virgin Australia flights, but you will no longer earn a class-of-service bonus or MQMs on Korean Air-marketed flights.

    Ways to maximize your mileage credit:
    Fly Delta flights (flight numbers that begin with DL)
    Fly any partner airline from “Group 1″
    Fly any Delta-marketed flights on any airline partner (partner flight numbers that begin with DL)
    You can visit to see the new chart and for more information about earning miles with partner airlines.

    Thanks for being a SkyMiles member. We look forward to seeing you on board.
