Is there anyway to fly back from DUB on AA or OneWorld metal and receive EQMs? Many thanks.
You can still fly DUB-LHR-JFK (or DUB-CDG-JFK, etc) with the first leg on EI. You just won't get miles for the EI sector, which is not that far anyway. You can buy these routings on so long as you select "all carriers". I would note that even in the past when Aer Lingus was part of Oneworld, most people typically never got miles for the EI sector, as the AA codeshare was usually more expensive than just taking the EI flight no. directly, and cheap fares in EI did not earn miles, i.e. no real change at all.
