Are there any disadvantages when using the a Krisflyer number on VA flights? Would rather accrue SQ points than Velocity

Similar to Qantas, Krisflyer is made up on two components; Miles (similar to QF points) and Elite Miles (similar to QF Status credits).

I tried this also, on a VA flight which was a SQ codeshare. I received 0 points. Reason: fare class not eligible.
im guessing this applies to all their partners? Delta?

I know that EY Guest is not very popular here but you can earn Tier Miles and Guest Miles on VA's flights.

Thing with Etihad is that they're in the habit of making changes without notice (e.g. they introduced new upgrade rates with immediate effect, which were higher than before), so it's a program that has its advantages, but I try not to keep miles sitting there. Lounge access with most partner airlines is also generally limited to partner-operated lounges (so no lounge when flying VA internationally, I believe).
Yes that's the massive issue with this program. But status is easy to earn. I would have liked if EY gives us VA international lounge access but it is apparently not happening. I need to build again my loyalty with an other airline but EY is ok for now.I only fly Australia - Europe and despite the catering issue they still offer a great product and I always have great seats in Y. Skyteam is useless in Australia so my AF card is not used as much as it should be ;)
