Is Qantas codesharing on VX flights now?

I looking for flights from Sydney to dallas for the 2-10-14 on the qantas website and it came up with virgin america flights instead of AA. I'm wondering if this is a web-site stuff up. I would find it amazing if qf has started codesharing with the sister airline of its biggest rival

Not quite. It is simply an interline agreement to increase connection options for customers travelling via LAX. It is not a codeshare agreement as you would notice it only has the VX flight number and no QF flight number. This gives customers more choices of departure and arrival times to DFW if the direct flights do not work for them.

In addition, VX may be used because AA may not have the most ideal flight times that pair up nicely with the QF LAX inbound flights. The search results should give you flight pairings with QF/AA as well as QF/VX. Hope that helps

If there was/is an option (and if so, and if were were in your shoes, OP), to earn some QF FF points and QF SC, while it can end up more $$$ and time consuming, (and AA is still in OW), I would choose to fly AA, and not VX.

It might mean you have to stay overnight, or pay a bit more, ie, be more inconvenient.

I do realise, too, that QF FF earn and SC earn rates on partner airlines have decreased since Jul 14.

They (QF) also offer UA as an option for some USA domestic connections..
