QF Status Credits on AA with multi-city flex booking

Hi fellow travellers, I was hoping some of you have come across this before. 

I am just finalising a multi-city economy flex booking  PER-SYD-LAX-DFW-WAS-LAX-SYD-PER and I noticed that when selecting AA flights for the domestic legs within the US I earn more status credits than I do if I select a QF ticket (even when it is the same flight). This seems a bit odd, usually it is the opposite (e.g. EK vs QF tickets on flights to Dubai).

By selecting AA tickets instead of QF tickets for 3 of the flights the total status credits go from 325 to 370.

Does anyone know if this is a 'bug' or a hidden gem?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Cheers,

JSS

Might be some hidden stopovers in there? AA flights sometimes have 'hidden' stopovers to other cities although the headline says otherwise (need to check the flight details). Once got a LAX-LAS flight, which should've been a short flight but didn't realise it would divert over to Phoenix for a stopover (it looked like a direct LAX->LAS on the purchase screen particularly as it was the same price). Got extra SCs in the process

Sometimes when you book Domestic "Business" class seats in the US, you are booking their "First" class (As they dont offer a business class), as its referred to in the US.... so the redemption is First class status credits, as compared with what we know as domestic business
