....................and update their partner mile earning section to reflect the new OW partners: JL, MA and RJ.

I have been told that JL books into B class not L which earns 70% miles though L class earns nothing. I currently have the NRT-BNE booked on QF code share on JL metal because I though JL would want the non-earning L class. I could change it to JL in B class but AA hasn't posted what the earning capacity for both miles and EQP once JL is officially in OW.

Does anyone have any inside info that isn't on AA website?

I think the expectation is that the earning rates will be published when they join - perhaps to prevent people delaying travel until they are a OW member...

JAL have released the tables for their frequent flyers and the earning rates on oneworld partners-www.jal.co.jp/en/jmb/oneworld
So hopefully the other OW partners will do the same soon.

I would have no expectation that the mileage earning rates will change from the current values (70% for non-Y economy)

Treat the qpoint earning at being at 50% for the discount fares of earned miles for discount Y and you are unlikely to be disappointed imo

The part that worries me is that JL currently books into B class for a LHGLOB34. JL flights are not available on the xONEx products. Since all OW airlines book into L class for a RTW fare (both GLOB and ONE products), I am worried that if I book the JL in B, after 1 April, they might change it to a L class which earns nothing in AA.

I'm holding the QF codeshare right now which earns 50% in L class for both miles and qpoints, but I would switch to the JL flight number if I could be assured they won't degrade it to a non-mileage earning class. This is for a July trip.
