Question about AA Miles earned on QF

I just recently flew ADL-BNE-SYD-LAX-JFK on Qantas. I knew I would earn a base 70% doubled to 140% with my 100% Platinum bonus. My question is how many Elite Status/Earned Upgrade qualifying miles do I earn: 70% or 100%?

I read the rules and the 70% continually refers to "mileage accrual" not base qualifying miles.

Thanks

Thanks - not as good on the qualifying front as Star alliance but the Plat bonus makes up for that and the credit to North American upgrades puts things well over the top.

bne-syd should net you 500 miles, as that is the minimum threshhold for a flight segment on qf.

I got the 500 minimum + the bonus but only got 380 or so Qualifying miles and the 620 were posted as bonus.

That's the way short segments post even if you flew AA. The important thing is that your elite qualifying total increases by 500.
