Does anybody know whether or not a QF ticket and flight number constitute an eligible flight segment for the purposes of the minimum four Qantas flight segments rule even if it is onboard EK metal? Many thanks.

It has to be a QF marketed flight. So needs QF code - no matter who operates.

It depends on the fare type. Many Oneworld fares such as the Oneworld Explorer do not permit use of the QF codeshares on board EK aircraft as EK is not a member of Oneworld. As an example if you wanted to get to Amsterdam SYD-DXB-AMS is not permitted as the DXB-AMS has to be a codeshare. You would have to go SYD-LON-AMS using BA on the LON-AMS. Its ridiculous because QF cancelled its agrement with BA to work with EK but BA is still a member of Oneworld and EK is not. So generally, if its a QF fare then yes but if its a Oneworld are then no.
