I am in need of some much needed advice.

I am travelling to London in July, 3rd July MEL-LHR on QF9, returning 22nd July on QF388.

QF388 happens to be a codeshared service operated by British Airways. I am travelling in discount economy. According to the terms of the QF Frequent Flyer program, I only earn 25% of the normal base miles (and i'm sure - status credits) on BA flights.

I was wondering if this applies on BA flights with a QF flight number?

Many thanks,
Keith

So long as you have a QF flight number on your ticket the base rate is 1, not 0.25. One of the few benefits of codeshare.

Coolness! Thanks for that.

What about the '4 Qantas flights' requirement to qualify for tier status though? Does QF388 count?

While I know this is an official rule, anecdotal evidence suggests that it is not enforced. Of course YMMV.
