You will most likely be able to get points for the US airways flight, but it depends on your fare class; www.aeroplan.com has a complete list of which US Airways flights are eligible for mileage accumulation.

As for Delta, I'm afraid you're out of luck; it might be worth signing up with Delta (or CO or NW)'s loyalty pplan to at least get the points somewhere.

You can earn Aeroplan on US Airways

For accumulation on Delta, i suggest to use Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, earn and redeem on Alaska, AA, Delta, Continental, Northwest in North America and others internationally.

Is the Alaska rewards program any better than the NWA/KLM WorldPerks program, which is also compatible with Delta?

I've flown US a lot, living in upstate New York, and I've never had trouble getting Aeroplan credit, regardless of fare class. Just be sure they have your AC number when you check in for the first flight.

are these codeshare flights that are operated by someone else and, if so, then are they eligible for *a miles? i ask because i have also been looking at flights to BUF on US and several are operated by a regional partner airline of US.

Yes, you can get *A points on US commuter flights. (Well, let me clarify that to say that I've always gotten *A points on them.)

Shortly after the merger, AC didn't give me miles for a US flight operated by the America West part of US, but that should have been fixed ages ago.
