Question Miles earned for AA codeshare on IB metal?

If I have got it right from the BA web site, one gets:
  • 125% of miles flown for business class flights on both AA & IB.
Additionally the tier bonus is:
  • 100% of miles for Silver/Gold on AA,
but only
  • Silver 25% / Gold 50% on IB.
If I book an AA codeshare flight on IB metal (JFK-MAD), presumably I should get the AA earnings, not the IB ones? Can anyone confirm that?
Many thanks.

I am 95% sure that you will get the AA earnings.

I think OW works on the principle of 'marketing carrier earning' rather than the *A principle of 'operating carrier earning'.
