    I've just booked some flights on JL for later this month. I remember reading that they are in the process of joining the oneworld alliance, so does anyone know when JL flights will earn points that can be credited to QFF?

    I don't think anyone knows the answer to that.

    But, there's no way it will be in time for you to get points (unfortunately).

    JAL full entry to Oneworld is supposed to occur at the end of this year, so I suspect sometime around then.

    Just a guess but probably not before your flights. :)

    A possible solution is to be an AAdvantage member. JAL mileage accrues to AA (but doesn't earn toward elite status). So do the Platinum Challenge if you do some One World flights, and just take the JAL mileage as something extra.

    Thanks for the info guys. The flights are only short so it's no big deal. I just wanted to make sure I was not missing out on earning any points! :D

    It generally takes a long time between announcing intention to join alliance, making commitment and it actually happening.

    Eg the 2 latest *A partners - LX joined 1 April 06 with announcement in December 2005 IIRC. This was a fast entry following purchase of LX by LH and speedy integration of the airlines. SA joined 10 April 06 after announcing joining *A in 2003 (or was it early 2004?)! Yes a very slow entry.
