Thanks in advance for any assistance with this.

Flying US domestic with AA next month, booked using the AA website. I have two separate PNRs: 1x LAX-SFO and 1x SFO-LAX-LAS-LAX.

1. All these legs have Qantas codeshare. Any chance I can change to the QF flight number (for more FF obviously)?

2. If not, can I get these flights to show on my QFF bookings page so I can keep track and make changes? I already have my QFF number in the booking but they are not showing up.

3. Is row 8 on an AA 738 like row 4 on a QF 738... more legroom with curtain bulkhead?

4. Main cabin extra or the rows with the middle seat blocked with a tray? Ms Chooms and I are currently booked in to main cabin extra 9A & 9C for each leg (which are all operated by a 738). Is it worth changing to the other normal economy with the middle seat already blocked or hope no-one chooses our middle seat (I can select any due to QFWP in the booking)?

No, you can only use domestic US QF coded flights with a QF coded international flight on the same ticket.

2. If not, can I get these flights to show on my QFF bookings page so I can keep track and make changes? I already have my QFF number in the booking but they are not showing up.
If the bookings were made on the AA website, they have a Sabre PNR. With no QF flights on the ticket, there wouldn't be a PNR that will work on the QF website. You can track and make any changes allowed by the ticket and status rules via the AA site.

3. Is row 8 on an AA 738 like row 4 on a QF 738... more legroom with curtain bulkhead?
No, they have bulkheads.

4. Main cabin extra or the rows with the middle seat blocked with a tray? Ms Chooms and I are currently booked in to main cabin extra 9A & 9C for each leg (which are all operated by a 738). Is it worth changing to the other normal economy with the middle seat already blocked or hope no-one chooses our middle seat (I can select any due to QFWP in the booking)?
"Main Cabin Extra" is the same as "normal" economy with some extra leg room.

Ring AA and they can give you the Armadas code for the flights so then you can look them up on the QF web site. This only works for genuine AA bookings/flights and not US Airways or (for example) Alaska flights.

If AA uses Sabre, how are they going to give an Amadeus reloc?

Correct. There is no Amadeus PNR/Reloc. If you book on aa.com, you're on AA codes and QF have no interaction. You cannot view AA bookings on QF's system at all (unless it has a QF segment associated with in, in which case yes it will have an Amadeus PNR as well as the Sabre).

Unless there is a qantas operated/marketed segment there will no Amadeus PNR for booking like the ones in question.

If wanting to track flights etc.

I recommend TripIt.
Just open an account and mail all your flight and hotel itineraries to it.

I now use a gmail account for all my travel related confirmation emails as it will automatically downloads the info into my tripit profile whereas previously any airline confirmation emailed to my yahoo address had to be forwarded on by me to the plans@tripit.com email address.

Agree the auto-check is good, albeit it seemingly only checks every six hours or so.
