Yes I agree the the term "qualifying partner airline flights" is very confusing unless you
are a long term member following the programme very closely. Even on their website it doesn't say this is only for the purpose of qualifying for Elite status and no other purposes.

Apparently only the following count as qualifying partner flights:

Cathay Pacific on flights between Auckland and Hong Kong (NZ4992/NZ4994/NZ4993/NZ4995)

Virgin Australia on flights between New Zealand and Australia (NZ7000 series, excludes domestic Australia flights)

United on flights between Auckland and San Francisco (NZ9816/NZ9817)
