To me, that means any (non-Basic) AA-operated flight with an AS or AA flight number earns whatever the chart shows (or greater), as long as you book it via Alaska. Sounds good.

But I can't seem to find any AS-coded, JL-operated flights (tried multiple dates, city pairs, booking engines, etc.), so which earnings table applies if you book a JL-coded, JL-operated flight via Alaska?

Does it follow the "better" chart because it's booked on the Alaska website, even though it has a JL code? Or, does it follow the "worse" chart because it's a JL flight number?
For example, an I fare earns 150% on the former but 70% on the latter, while a V fare earns 100% and 50%. Those are pretty big differences.

AS coded JL flights

Although it's booked in O and Q class they will earn 100% EQM.

I feel so stupid. I don't know how I missed that, and I even added the flights to the cart over a dozen times when testing it out. They should really add the AS code in the search results, too. (trying to excuse my stupidity )

Thanks!

(for me getting a random left-over seat at checkin would be a non starter)
QF did not allow me to despite being 100k

One would think based on the phrasing of the announcement that the 100% RDM/EQM earn should apply to JL-coded, JL-operated flights booked through alaskaair.com as well though (or any flight booked through alaskaair.com, regardless of marketing carrier, for that matter). Whether its actually the case remains to be seen, I guess.
