Where to credit will depend on what sort of flying is planned, doing an AA challenge might be of help.

Can not seem to find anything on AA.com either
If this post is in response to the Plat challenge you need to phone AA to register

The earn/burn is much better with AA, but they now do not have soft landings from status

Am in a similar position to raleyoz. will retain WP next week but anniversary not til Aug 31. Perhaps the AA challenge as well, but I already have SYD-LHR and SYD-DFW booked with my QFF # attached. Anyone know if I can update this to an AA number as these flights should earn quite a few points??

You can change Ff details by just calling up, I often do it on each flight for some itineries.

Other than AA, don't forget there are a few more milestones you may want to consider with QFF:
1. 1,500 SCs to reach your 3rd Loyalty bonus - 8,000 points
2. 2,000 SCs to reach your 4th Loyalty bonus - another 8,000 points
3. 2,400 SCs to reach Partner Gold where you can choose either 50K pts, gift Gold to someone or receive some valet vouchers

Sure, they're not huge milestones, but depending on your circumstances, may be worthwhile considering.

Thanks all, lots of food for thought,
My thoughts are not sure lifetime status is worth chasing, just a fun benchmark,
I have approx 700 SC more planned, which does put me in the 2400 ballpark,and 50k is a reasonable incentive
As I fly Y- then the earn for A A looks poor so I think go for the 2400 is the target
Thanks again
