EQM earnings on partner airlines: Please report your experiences

Could someone please post whether or not they receive US DM EQMs for the following:
  • AA codeshare flights operated by OneWorld carriers, such as BA, IB and CX
  • Flights booked on OneWorld carriers (that are not AA codeshares)
  • Flights on legacy *A carriers, such as Aegean and Turkish, that are still US partners for "earn and burn"

FAQs are clear that these will accrue DM miles (I think), but not clear whether these will be EQMs.

This is found on the DM Preferred qualifying page:

Only miles earned on American Airlines or oneworld alliance airlines are Preferred-qualifying miles.

US EQM's are earned any time you fly on US/USX/AA/AAX/partner airlines. As of today, OW carriers will earn US EQM's, assuming that the carrier has made the changes to recognize US as a OW carrier. Also as of today, there are a few *A carriers that will still have agreements with US separate from the *A, so they should earn EQM's.

I agree about AA and the OW carriers as to what should happen, but don't think it's as clear with the *A carriers. However my concern is not what should happen, but what does happen.

Surely there are some FTers who will be able to report on the actual results.

AA/US seems to be working pretty well since there are few complaints as far a mileage being credited. I agree about the OW/remaining *A or other partners. Not every OW carrier will be ready to credit US miles and US won't be ready to recognize all OW carriers as of today.

And I corrected my last post - for some reason I had a mental hiccup and said the transition to OW was tomorrow.

Has anyone gotten DM credit for a OW flight other than AA yet? How about for a flight on one of the legacy *A carriers (Aegean, Singapore, Turkish, etc.)?

Have they come in as EQMs?

I believe the answer is no. That flight would fall into AS for PQMs. You could earn AA miles since they have an agreement with AS, but not any US miles.

I'm not clear on the answers so far in this thread so I'll pose the following question:

Does a US coded flight on SQ, booked in C/J or F, earn PQM's or RDM's if booked and flown prior to July 31 (the end of the partnership)?

My flights on BA last week have all posted PQM's including the 10% cabin bonus for flying WT+.

Does anyone have any experience with this yet? Or AA marketed operated by JL? I'd like to know whether to use my US or AA number for these segments.

I flew on a Qantas operated and marketed flight back in April, in a fare class earning 25%. The EQMs originally posted as 25% of miles flown (300ish) PLUS a 50% Gold bonus, but 2 months later were removed and replaced with a 500 mile minimum PLUS 50% Gold bonus. This was unexpected, as I always thought 500 mile minimums only applied where the fare class earned you 100% in the first place.

I flew a Finnair codeshare on British Airways and credited to my USAir account. It has not posted yet and I am unsure if it counts after more closely re-reading the website.

The other BA flights I took after that have already posted and I was wondering if it was still worth watching or if it was ineligible and not to bother.
Thanks.
