    Just wondering if anyone know how many status credits I'll earn for a flight from LAX to LAS, in First, operated by AA (booked thru Qantas of course)? I assume that eco will rake in 10 SC similar to SYD-BNE but wondering if the SC is doubled to 20 if flying First? Just trying to work out if it's worth spending $100 extra for the additional SC...

    Thanks

    Qantas website should be about to tell you.
    Search for status credits and partner airlines.

    I know that LAX - DEN on AA first (which is a misnomer as it's worse than QF Dom J) is worth 90 SC one way

    Depends when.

    LAX-LAS is 236m.

    In First -
    Presently earns 60 SCs (in the 0-600m category) -- note this is triple a full economy fare (eg SYD-BNE in Business earns 40 SCs)
    Post 1-July it will earn 40 SCs (in the Intra USA shorthall up to 750m category)


    LAX-DEN however would remain at 90 SCs

    It's no so much who you booked through (QF vs AA) but how.

    IIRC if you book "J" on a QF codeshare or marketed flight LAX/LAS but sit in the F cabin on an AA metal flight you only get J status credits.

    Were your flights LAX $ LAS vv booked as "QF" or "AA"?

    My points posted as follows for flights I booked via the AA US website.

    AA 1014 DISCOUNT ECONOMY 23APR14
    LAS VEGAS/LOS ANGELES

    59 base points
    59 status bonus
    500# total points
    10 status credits

    AA 952 FIRST

    If it is fare code A, F or P you'll get 60 SCs until end June.

    Correct

    AA F only earns J rate if booked through Qantas.

    I always book my AA flights from AA.com to get F SC rates.
