As an example, KLM flight 6162 is not on their list of KLM flights that they credit for mileage. But the funky thing is that both KLM (the marketing airline) and the actual airline (Delta) are both codeshare partners. So do they give you credit for this somehow, anyway, even though it's not in the range they specify on that web page (0001-2499)? If they do give you credit, does the mileage count towards elite status?

Clarifications

  • I realize that the web page already says they won't give credit, what I'm wondering is if someone out there has personally gotten credit for one of these flights anyway
  • I realize I could call Alaska and ask but I hate calling people on the phone, and...
  • Based on reading other forums, it sounds like the answer to this question kind of varies based on the whim of the person you're talking to at the airline; that's why I'm wondering if anyone has actually done this successfully

This is a bit specialized. Can you ask a more general question? And practically speaking, have you called the airline? –  DJClayworth Apr 20 '12 at 3:22

Ok, generalized it a bit. Haven't called the airline 'cuz a) it's too late at night and b) if I wanted to talk to a person, I wouldn't posting here :-) –  flyerdood Apr 20 '12 at 3:49
    
I don't think specialised is a bad thing at all. If at all, we want more specific questions. –  Ankur Banerjee Apr 20 '12 at 8:48
    
The question is in fact answered on the page you link to. Why do you think the web page is wrong? –  DJClayworth Apr 20 '12 at 11:10
    
@DJClayworth Ok I clarified the question again. I do think the web page is likely stating the rules accurately enough, but I'm wondering how often they are actually bent (ideally I'd like to hear from a real customer who's actually done this). –  flyerdood Apr 20 '12 at 16:59

It says pretty clear that the flight isn't eligible:

To qualify for mileage accrual, flights must be marketed by KLM and must also fall within the eligible flight number range.

Delta sells tickets on that very flight under its own flight code, for that you would be credited.

Already realized that. Added clarification to my question to (hopefully) make it clear what I'm actually asking. –  flyerdood Apr 20 '12 at 16:57

I ended up calling Alaska Airlines about something else so also asked about this question. Turns out it doesn't matter what the flight is marketed as, what matters is which airline is actually operating the flight. So they would give credits for all the flights listed in the question.
