How many miles does CX A class earn

So, I'm not a novice flyer, nor am I new to AS - been 75K for past few years, however I never fly partners, only AS.
Thanks to the NYE delight, I will soon be flying HAN-HKG-YVR (and back). I know I won't earn any AS miles on the KA-operated HAN-HKG flights, but I'm not sure I fully understand how many miles I'll be earning on the CX-operated HKG-YVR flights booked in A class.
CX partner earning chart on AS states that F/A classes will earn 100% base miles + 50% COS bonus + 200% additional bonus. On top of that, as a 75K, I get 125% bonus. HKG-YVR is 6,392. So, I expect to earn 9,588 EQM for that leg - is that correct?
How many RDM will I earn? is it (6,392 x 350%) x 225%? That would be over 50K RDM one way?
Lastly, I do know that flying partner airlines, I will need 90K to requalify as 75K, not just 75K -but these flights should help for sure!

Thanks,
Bostonbali

The EQM will be 150% of miles flown.
The RDM will be 350% of miles flown.
The RDM Elite Bonus will be 125% of miles flown for 75K. (base miles without COS Bonus)

Total EQM 150% which is also RDM
