Upgrade SIA flight with KrisFlyer, do I still earn VA status credits?

Hi all, question on Velocity and KrisFlyer.
If I book an SQ flight (through SIA, not VA) and then transfer points to upgrade to J can I still claim the Status Credits with velocity?
The virgin website mentions no points can be earned when a fare is booked with KrisFlyer points which makes sense, but I’m unclear if I can claim missing points on the economy ticket.



I think for most FF program, you only earn the points/SC from the paid fare. E.g. you paid for Economy and upgraded to Business. You only get that from the paid Economy.

Check out this page to see whether you get any SC from the flight. link.
