I am looking to book some flights on EK that do not depart from, or arrive in Australia (specifically India to Dubai, and back).I am QF FF and keen to maximise SC and points earn, and I presume the best way to do this would be to book the flight with a QF flight number, but the QF UAE site does not allow me to search for 'purely international' flights.

Qantas doesn't have traffic rights from any Asian cities to Dubai except for Singapore so unless it's to/from Singapore they can't legally sell tickets on a QF codeshare.
Understood and thanks for the help. No, they're not crucial for status retain so will just go direct.
