I regularly fly Finnair to Europe via Tokyo and have never had a problem with points or SC allocation, they usually show up within 2 weeks. On a recent trip i have had numerous problems with allocation

That is very strange! I've flown RTW business with Finnair a few times and each leg is credited without issues. Keep us posted
From my discussion with QFF
Actually there are more Finnair numbers that are "ineligible"

I am surprised that any Finnair flights that aren’t codeshare attract Qantas status credits and points. I had a similar situation with Alaskan Airlines, no points or status credits.

Very different. Alaskan is not part of oneworld, Finnair is.

Tyapical bloody Qantas. Only thing that is eligible is when they take your cash. I've had some "eligibility" issues too.

In your case, it's just a misunderstanding of the T&Cs on needing to book a flight originating in Australia.

There is no flight numbers listed as ineligible on the QF Airline Earning Table for Finnair. Assuming it is an eligible booking class, I can't see how they can be correctly excluded.
And the saga continues, I have now been told to contact Finnair and they will need to credit the points and SC to my account (doesn't sound right to me but i will try)

I had a similar problem with a Finnair booking but it was resolved with the correct points/status credits posted. You may want to email the boarding the boarding passes and e-ticket to [email protected] and point out that I class is paid business class and according to the Terms and Conditions eligible for business class points/status credits.

Business class on JL international flights books into C, D, J, X class while 'discount business' books into 'I' class, as per the JL website.
According to the Qantas Points Table for JL, 'I' class does indeed earn at 'standard economy' rates, which is 15 SCs from MEL-NRT and NRT-SYD.
Unfortunately, if your original itinerary/ticket says the JL flights were booked in 'I' class, then it appears the status credits earn is correct with Qantas (and I agree, that's very unusual and somewhat deceptive).
