- 22,144 miles or 5.8 cents per mile. KLM is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance and a partner of Delta’s SkyMiles program. Credit this itinerary with Delta as it is full mileage earning with them. It will only earn 25% with KLM’s Flying Blue. 22,144 miles is almost enough for a free domestic ticket and Silver Medallion status with Delta. Remember to provide your Delta SkyMiles number at check-in to receive your miles — DO NOT CREDIT THIS TO KLM’s PROGRAM.
