    Hi folks...new to MP, but already liking the comments. I am a loyal Delta flyer with DM status, but am taking Virgin Australia from LAX to MEL this weekend in business class. Do I get the same mile perks on my Delta account since this is a codeshare?

    Welcome to MP!!!

    Check this link for more detail. It depends on what Fare class you booked. You say Business (D, I, C, J), so you should get 150% MQM.

    Welcome to MP!! USAF_Pride has done a good job covering your question, but in case someone averse to clicking links comes along later, the only real danger zone with VA-operated flights is booking in LUT classes. These are the only known examples of DL-coded flights earning less than 100% miles as of the time I post this.

    Then again, as with all things DL, rules are subject to change! :)

    Be Aware you will not get bonus miles for this flight! You'll get your miles and EQM just not the 125% Diamond bonus miles. Yet, if you bought the ticket via DL and you have DL flt number instead of a VA flt number on your ticket, THEN you should get all your Delta bonus.
