Does anyone have any idea on how Krisflyer miles are accrued if booked through SAS. I got flights on the 2019 SAS sale flying SQ metal to europe via CPH. From everything i can tell online, it looks like these should accrue the full Krisflyer miles rewards. But I don't really understand the complexities of flying on SQ metal, but booked under a SAS codeshare.

In this case you would earn KrisFlyer miles based on the SAS rate.

CPH is a great airport to navigate. It can be a mayhem at passport control depending on what time you arrive. SAS aircrafts on short haul is an absolute joke. The only saving grace is that you most likely would fly all the way from australia to CPH on SQ metal. Last year i flew to AMS on a SAS ticket for under $5000. The CPH-AMS flight was a little bit scary, but it worked.
Enjoy the SQ service and forget about the rest.

Looks like the booked into Z - flexi business on Singapore, so that's a bonus!
