Can anyone suggest a "best-practice" for encoding aiff files for maintaining metadata?

I have about 200 .aiff files that are a combination of vinyl rips using Pro Tools and conversions from FLAC that refuse to hold their tags. They appear completely blank when loaded in Jaikoz and many (not all) yield successful matches from both MusicBrainz and Discogs. The rest I have manually added metadata in Jaikoz. After saving and reloading them into Jaikoz they appear blank again. Same result in iTunes, they show up with simply the file name in the title but everything else is blank.

As a workaround I've converted many to mp3 which works for tagging but with an obvious loss of data.

My assumption was that aiff was the best format for lossless in regards to proper tagging...am I doing something wrong?
