Do you earn QF status points if flight was redeemed using AAdvantage bonus miles?

Hi everyone - if I redeem American advantage miles which i bought through a promotion on a QF flight, is it possible to still get QF status points? Thanks. Andrew

Hey Andrew,

No - points tickets and industry discounted fares aren’t eligible for status earn even in your situation where you’ve purchased your fare using miles through another carriers program.

The only exception to this rule is where you do any anyseat redemption using your qff points, but in that scenario your points devalue massively so it never really represents good value.
