How will AA determine EQD for this (HAN-IAD)?

Booked a Happy New Year CX fare from HAN-IAD. Since I was a little late to the game, only thing left was AA metal TPAC HKG-LAX in First. Booked at CX.com.

1. Booked on CX.com. All flights booked as CX code shares with CX flight numbers. Issued on CX stock (160). Booked into A class with A fares rules. Put my AA number on reservation. Am ExPlat.
2. Check reservation on AA.com. All flights show as AA flight numbers. Not CX codeshares.
3. Even more strange, it has the exact fare amount listed. So AA knows what the fare amount is.

Will I get EQD based on Fare or distance?

Sorry, this one confounds me. Any help appreciated.

If you booked at CX.com with CX flight numbers, then the flights will credit as CX flights. Don't worry about what aa.com is showing, it can get confused with a booking a like this.

Question EQDs on CX flights?

Assuming the itinerary HAN-HKG-IAD in J &F booked on CX with CX & KA flights, how many EQDs would it earn on AA?

HAN-HKG: 500 * 0.25 (for J fare, business class) = 125
HKG-IAD: 8150 * 0.3 (for A fare, first class) = 2445
2570 EQDs each way? Could anyone confirm?

That calculation would be correct, however unless something has changed HKG-IAD doesn't offer F service so I'm not sure how you got an A booking code on that segment?

Thanks, my actual itinerary is DAD-HKG-JFK [CX first class].
I was just hijacking the OP's thread as an example.
Thank you ^
