flights on QR metal but BA flightnumber

I have flights booked for 2020 summer holiday, which I anticipate will be cancelled at some point.
Now I would be happy to take a BA voucher, but next year I would like to go to Asia (probably DPS), on QR metal. Since the voucher can only be used to book BA flight numbers (if I understood correctly), I am looking for a possibility to book QR metal fligts using the BA voucher. I am based in AMS.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions on how to book

I’d wait for the flights to be cancelled and get actual cash. I know you can have a mix of QR and BA on a 125 ticket, not sure if you can have QR only

There used to be quite a few BA/QR codeshares and there has been discussion about them before here: Destinations bookable as BA Holiday using Qatar

It seems that at the moment, the codeshares are not there, whether this is temporary or permanent is an open question. See here for a bit of discussion regarding that: BA cancellation of Qatar codeshare... rebooked into underlying Qatar flight

Edit: The ones that I can find:

- BA5807/QR27 DOH-MAN
- BA5808/QR28 MAN-DOH
- BA6190/QR638 DOH-DAC
- BA6199/QR639 DAC-DOH
- BA6355/QR655 CMB-DOH
- BA6366/QR654 DOH-CMB
- BA6374/QR904 DOH-MEL
- BA6375/QR905 MEL-DOH
- BA6387/QR956 DOH-CGK
- BA6395/QR955 CGK-DOH
- BA7003/QR3 DOH-LHR
- BA7004/QR4 LHR-DOH

If you have a BA segment on the booking things the BA coded QR metal flights should become available (e.g. AMS-LHR-DOH-DPS-DOH-AMS, with only the first segment operated by BA). You'll likely not get the cheapest QR deals on that booking though, so taking a cash refund may indeed be a better approach.
