For mix miles and cash bookings, the number of KrisFlyer miles, Elite miles and PPS Value you earn will be in proportion to the fare that you've paid with your credit/debit card (excluding taxes). If the full fare is paid with KrisFlyer miles, no KrisFlyer miles, Elite miles and PPS Value will be earned. More in FAQs.
