Earning AS EQM on LAN booked as Qantas codeshare

My wife and I are travelling to Australia in March on the elusive QF/CX business awards. We were planning a trans-Tasman hop to NZ while we were there.

Qantas is selling a AUK-SYD codeshare operated by LAN for about $40 cheaper then through LAN's website in J. I wanted to book through Qantas for better IRROP protection in case the inbound A340 is

The Qantas flight number assigned, QF322 is ineligible to earn AS miles but the LAN flight 801 is eligible. Am I correct to assume metal is what matters and this flight will still earn miles if I book through Qantas?

AS is pretty strict about ticket stock and marketing carrier. Let me now how it works out as I'm still trying to figure out how I'm getting from AU-NZ next year.

No guarantee for sure - I've submitted boarding passes from the operating airline and gotten EQM credited, but I've also been denied.
