I am looking to fly on Qantas with an infant and wanted to use BA to avoid the 10% of revenue ticket.  But BA appears to be charging YQ on infant ticket too!  Is that correct?  I thought that was the benefit to using BA.  Thanx

BA charges YQ for the actual ticket as well, so QF on BA is not very ideal.
Best way is to add through a TA

a TA can add an infant to an award ticket using AA miles?

No. he can book the infant separately, which is fine.
Not all TA's will do this for you obviously, but some will. PM WhyAich, he'll assist you if he's not too busy with his newbie.

I just bumped into this thread so I will add a minor tidbit of info.

I recently flew EWR-ZRH-TLV/TLV-ZRH-FRA-EWR in a combination of UA/LX/LH on business reward tickets.  I bought the ticket for myself with UA miles and for my wife with US miles

UA added my baby for $356.  US had wanted nearly $1K to add the baby.

When I tried making changes to the ticket, still within the no charge to change rewards period with UA, I was told that the infant ticket was like a revenue ticket and subject to a $250 change fee

Figured this is the best thread to post this. My wife and I and are flying on SWA on award tickets. I forgot my lap infant's passport and BC at home. Will I have issues?
I have scanned copies of all of her documents in the cloud....

was told that i needed to book a RT refundable ticket (10%) for infant even if im travelling OW and that i would be able to cancel the return portion after the first leg and get back half the cost??
Is this true, can one cancel after part of the ticket has been used?

Don't know which airline you are talking about but I have booked an infant on a one way ticket via AA many times.
