Where can I deposit miles for a flight bough on Etihad and operated by V Australia

Hi everybody,
I have the following flights:
- EY056: BRU - AUH operated by EY (class L)
- EY450: AUH - SYD operated by EY (class L)
- EY6451: SYD - AUH operated by VA (class L)
- EY57: AUH - BRU operated by EY (class L)
For the flights operated by EY I will credite them with AA (class L: 100% earning)
The doubts concern the flight operated by VA. Where can I credit this flight? It is possible to credit this flight too to AA? If not, are there any other possibilities?
Thanks a lot.

I can think of only couple of options - maybe others can add more.

1. Delta SkyMiles allows you to credit V Australia flights.

2. Any of the Virgin airlines - Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America or Virgin Australia.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot,
This would be great: L earn 100% miles with Delta.
I have still two doubts:
1. In the conditions is written: Virgin Australia International (VA coded only). If I understand well my flight is EY coded (I bought the ticket with EY), but the same flight has obviously also a VA code. Is this VA code taken into consideration if I try to credit the miles to SkyMiles program?
2. The L class for EY can be a different one in VA. But this I think should be less problematic. Also another class in Virgin Australia should be eligeble.

You will not earn anything in SkyMiles for any flight coded as EY regardless of who actually operates the flight. Only Virgin Australia operated and coded flights (i.e. VA metal, and booked under a VA code) would earn in SkyMiles.

Thanks a lot for explaining me the rules.
