I'm booked on AA2489 (FLL-DFW) connecting to AA7375 (=QF8, DFW - BNE) on 26th October.
Strange thing is my AA e-ticket says "CHECK IN WITH OPERATING CARRIER" for AA7375 ... which means QF.
Seriously, does this mean I'm supposed to go reclaim by baggage and check in with QF at DFW? ... even though its a codeshare and I'm an AA passenger I can't be checked through to BNE from FLL? I've got 3 hours between flights to do it if I have to but it sucks.
Does anyone know if that is really how it works or did AA just take a brainfart on my e-Ticket?

Your bags will definitely be checked. I've found that even with codeshares, airlines have some problems issuing the connecting boarding pass. But QF and AA have a pretty well-oiled alliance, so you should be fine.

As an agent at an AA ticket counter, I check in lots and lots of people for QF 8 all the time, and we always through-check bags and issue through boarding passes. You can even purchase separate tickets and we can still through-check you to BNE.
You won't have any problem at all! Thanks for flying AA and enjoy your trip down under!
