Earning Qantas points on a BA/QR mix

Hi all,

I'm going to Africa later this year and the best price is on QR, however it is N class which doesn't earn anything on QFF.

I've found on the American Express Travel website the exact same flights but sold as a BA codeshare ticket. All flights operated by QR but all flights have BA flight numbers. It is still in N class, but N class earns on BA.

I was wondering if I will earn as per the BA chart? When I go onto the calculator it will only show the Doha - Africa flight as a QR so not sure it will totally work.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks!

In Oneworld the ff earnings are determined by the marketing flight number/booking fare class, if an eligible flight. An BA flight number on a QR operated flight would be eligible, subject to fare booking class.

If looking to earn to QF the QF ffp chart is what counts. What a flight/booking fare class earns to the BA ffp is irrelevant.

Thanks @Mwenenzi! Forgot about wheretocredit. If I had booked the tickets with a QR flight number in N class they would earn nothing but with a BA flight number in N class they earn.
