Put your QFF number on the booking so you can access those benefits, then ask them really nicely at the lounge to change you to your Asia Miles - if your fare is eligible to earn those.

Your OWE apply as long as you are flying a OW carrier - so i don't see why you could not put your Asia Miles number down. It just means you would need to whip out your QFF card as it would not be on the ticket. Another way would be to simply not put any FF program down, turn up with your QFF card to get in to the lounges etc. and then claim the point in Asia Miles after the trip

Very high chance that the lounge dragons will request the OP to change their Asia Miles to the QFF number in the booking or deny them access.

You could put the Qantas number into the booking and then after the flight request a retro credit to another program.

I do this in reverse - show my CX Gold card at Qantas lounges - and they are fine with it. But if the status is not on your ticket, you do need your card with you. And don't do what I did once and bring an expired card, they need this year's one!

Don't know about OW, but with Star I take a lot of LH flights that don't accrue miles on TK (where I'm *G). I keep the TK number in the system for lounge/priority boarding and then do a retrospective claim to LH afterwards, where I get the *S bonus. See if that works.
Yes Oneworld works like that as well however obviously the Ausbt readers don't agree as my post above indicating to do this got 6 downvotes.
