AC metal between two Chinese airports (PVG > HKG), no AQD correct?

As per title, as you cannot book between two Chinese destinations on AC's site, or is there a workaround? Even if I book codeshare/*A flights I would only get the AQM not AQD unless 014 ticket stock correct? Thanks!

You will get AQM but not AQD if booked on *A

I am booked on Air China between PEK & ICN next month so I expect to get my AQM and that is it!

I'm trying to find a way from PVG to HKG, and Juneyao is coming up as a *A connecting partner, thinking this may be it, or Shenzhen Airlines.

Ok, good like, Since AC is giving the status they want to make sure we are spending on AC and not on others.

I just looked on my dashboard and when flying on *A i have received the AQM but never the AQD, However I never booked those flights on 014 stock!

Hope it works for you

I'm a little confided by your title which mentions AC metal - if you fly something like PVG YVR HKG on AC metal you will most certainly get AQD. Flights on any other Star Alliance airline (e.g. CA) won't get AQD unless booked on AC (014) ticket stock. With a few exceptions, you won't be able to book an itinerary that doesn't include any AC segments on AC ticket stock, so any logical itinerary from PVG to HKG isn't going to get AQD.
