I am planning LAX-DOH-MLE on QR in J (R class) sometime in the next few months and wonder if I should credit the miles to my existing AA or CX program or my newly-opened QR Privilege Club account.

I have no status on AA or CX currently and am a QR newbie. It looks like all the programs have different earning and redeeming rates for miles, as well as elite qualification thresholds.

Any insight on the pros and cons of earning and redeeming miles on the QR program vs. AA or CX would be greatly appreciated.

I am Lifetime Gold on UA and do not need to chase status with Star Alliance. Going forward, I will choose airlines based on best value for money, mostly in J long haul and Y short haul. I like CX, have read great things about QR, and normally avoid AA if possible. Thanks.
