If your Garuda flight is booked under a GA flight number, you may wish to consider crediting those miles to Etihad Guest (as Garuda and Etihad are partners), as those Etihad miles can then be spent on Virgin Australia flight bookings at very reasonable rates, and topped up from transfer programs such as AMEX Membership Rewards.Alternatively, if it's booked as a DL codeshare, you may instead be best crediting that flight to Delta Skymiles, or to another SkyTeam frequent flyer program, depending on your loyalty preferences and goals.
Thank you Dimi and ChrisCh for the info. Its really an eye opener for me! Never thought that the GA flight won’t get any Velocity status credit or points as it was all marketed and ticketed by Delta. I counted on that SC earned to retain my Velocity Gold status :( now i will be 90 SC short.
