Primary and Secondary FF number

Hi All

Not sure if my FF goggles are getting blurry, but was there post explaining how to have multiple FF numbers on a per sector flight?

Flying from (AA) ATL-DFW-LAX on a non earning (QF) class. So I wanted to add my AA number (Primary) but also have my QF number (Secondary) in there for status. Its really only for the pre-boarding, so its not a biggy.
But then I have a QF Flight LAX-BNE in non earning AA class (So no G/P challenge) :( , so then I need to have no AA FF in there.

From reading around, CheckMyTrip should have something like.

Frequent flyer: American Airlines - AA******
American Airlines - QF******
Qantas Airways - QF******

Is that correct?? So the first AA is for the points and the second is for the status.

Bit of a side issue is QF got me the PNR from the AA record locator, but for some reason it doesn't have the ATL-DFW flight on there. So im not sure if the QF PNR is going to be used at all until I hit the QF flight. Which would mean the process needs has to work with AA system, rather than just the QF Amadeus PNR like checkmytrip.
