Gidday all, Sorry if its been discussed. I've tried to go back through some of the questions but alas, it avoids me.
Looking at doing an around the world trip later this year. Obviously trying to utilise VA to pick up the SCs, but some of the companies we are looking at use Virgin Atlantic and Singapore Airlines. Question I pose to you all - if I fly on VS or SIN airlines that are obviously not ticketed to VA, can I still get SCs for them?

Depending on the fare class of your ticket, you can earn Status Credits to Velocity on Virgin Atlantic and Singapore Airlines.

Yes, you still get SC's (subject to the ticket type).

We would be flying PE on all legs.
Does that change things?

You'll earn VA points and status credits for SQ/VS premium economy at the 'International Long Haul Premium' rate (i.e. 30 SCs from 0-750 miles up to 150 SCs for 8,001 miles +). No need for VA flight numbers.

For Singapore Airlines, ensure the PE bookings codes are: S, T, P, or R
For Virgin Atlantic, the PE codes need to be: W, K, H or S.

You will earn status credits for both VS and SQ in premium economy, so yes. You will earn points too!
