While there have been a couple threads (elsewhere mostly) about QF no longer code sharing on BA flights LHR-European destinations (except where Emirates doesn't fly) next year, I haven't seen any indications on what BA code shares on QF flights will continue to exist.
Presently BA has the right to issue tickets HKG/BKK/SIN-Australia on (QF) code share flights without the LHR legs. Will that right continue after the BA/QF JSA ends? Actually more interested in HKG/SIN-PER but a generic answer is also useful.
BA should kick QF out of oneworld, they have caused so much trouble with CX and now with BA.

Perhaps better not to speculate on this sort of stuff, considering how CX seems to be a rather reluctant member of OW (a bit like OW's equivalent of SQ for *A). Can you imagine a OW with neither CX nor QF?

Give it 5 years and QF may not need to be kicked out; they'll just fade away!
I thought I saw something on TV recently that even the domestic market is not a shoe-in for QF as it used to be. My company fly around 400 people a month domestically in Australia and they've just switched to Virgin Australia where they can.
What is the authoritative source of that statement ?
As for CX, they are going to code share with Air NZ (a member of the dark side alliance). But there is nothing unusual with code shares with airlines in opposing alliances
This reference to Australian Business Traveler appeared on airliners.net . There is a statement in the airliners thread that BA will continue to codeshare on QF flights exSIN/HKG but that is not quite the same as being able to sell BA codes on flights originating in those cities to Australia.
