I seem to recall that when AA & B6 announced reciprocal partnerships for their FF programs on select routes, AA said they are looking into AAdvantage members earning EQM's on those B6 flights. I realize that B6 doesn't have a tiered FF program, and the only other non-OneWorld carrier AAdvantage members can earn miles on is Alaska. But, with AA relying so heavily on B6 for non-stop routes that AA has dropped, ie. BOS-RDU, BOS-MCO, etc.:
1. What is the reason for AA not awarding EQM's for the B6 flights it allows mileage accrual?
2. Is there any expectation of this changing?
