Cathay Pacific and AAdvantage

The gig is up. I've been sending all the frequent flier miles from my Chengdu trips on Cathay Pacific/Dragonair to my AAdvantage account. That way, I can accrue miles towards oneworld and have AA miles to fly free to Canada. It appears that the new fare structure on Cathay Pacific's website does not allow that anymore except for the most expensive economy tickets (~$3,000). The discounted economy fares (~$1,000) only allows miles to accrue on AsiaMiles. I guess it's time to enroll in Cathay Pacific's Marco Polo club to keep accruing miles for Hong Kong lounge use purposes.
