I'm keen to know whether you can still earn VA status credits on SQ flights when you book an SQ flight and then use miles to upgrade to a higher class cabin? I'm aware that previously when i booked SQ flights and paid using SQ miles, that I wasn't legible for VA SCs.... Is upgrades the same deal or would I still qualify as long as the base fare was bought using non-SQ reward points?

If the base fare was a revenue fair, You will earn status credits based on your original fare bucket.

It may be a glitch and I hope it works for you as well, when I was called by SQ to check if I wanted to upgrade to J for 999$ I was given full business SC for Virgin Australia... 120SC vs 20 I was initially to earn
Thanks - That is, as long as I'm paying for the base fare - I should get VA SCs. If I choose to upgrade- its a cabin upgrade and not a ticket upgrade hence no change to the base fare.

If you pay for the base fare and redeem KF miles for cabin upgrade, you will get Velocity points and SCs of the base fare.
