Qatar Airways and American Airlines have joined forces on the FFP side, another step in Qatar Airways joining the oneworld alliance. A few weeks ago we mentioned that Qatar and British Airways started their reciprocal FFP partnership and now we AA as well. Here are the earning details from Qatar's site and here they are for American.

In the bonus offers section we list an offer from ANA All Nippon Mileage Club for discounted award flights. This is one of those better offers for Canadian Mileage Club members since ANA doesn't actually fly to Canada but the promotion is for reward tickets on Air New Zealand and ANZ does serve Vancouver. If you don't collect Mileage Club miles you can take advantage of this offer by converting Starwood Preferred Guest Points into Mileage Club.
