I'm about to book an Etihad flight that includes a domestic sector on VA and I will be crediting all the status credits to Velocity. I can't book VA as code share doesn't cover the international flights I need. Under the new VA Status credits earn tables, zone 3 domestic is 90 for a discount business, but 80 for international zone 3. If I fly on VA metal domestic on an EY ticket, would I earn 80 or 90 SCs? These 10 credits will actually make the difference between hitting platinum or not this year.

as long as it is a valid class of travel then you get the same as you would if you flew on a VA ticket.
