Maximizing EQD's: AA vs. OW Carrier on Long Flights (HKG, etc.)

Question: On DONE04 ex-NRT, does one get more miles with DFW-HKG (AA) or JFK-HKG (CX)?
Context: I'm reviewing maximizing EQD accrual. I only got $166 EQD MIA-DFW on D ticket.
I want to pay attention to EQD maximization on DONE's going forward.
I did have a recent DONE04 ex-NRT that EQD's were calculated based on mileage for NRT-DFW (AA)
Sometimes AA doesn't pick up fare basis even on AA flights.
But I had booked an Orbitz package in J (flights/hotel) MIA-LHR earlier this year, and EQD's were calculated based on fare. (In the past had been mileage based).

This is really an AA question, not one for Oneworld. Please review this thread on the AA board - RTW / Round the World ticket - earning AAdvantage Miles
