Note that all sAAver flights available on AA.com are able to be booked on BA.  When there are many flights on one day, they may not all be listed on BA.com.  So you will have to call to book it.  Get the phone fee waved because it wasn't able to be booked on line.


NOTE: Household accounts will not allow transfers from Iberia to BA. Make sure you don't have a household account, and if you do, split it up.

NOTE: When booking, erase your Avios number when entering your passenger information. This will make it much simpler to add your AA Advantage number at a later time.

When I go on BA.com it doesn't let me book for anyone else besides for myself. Does anyone know why this is happening.
if you are part of a household account it won't let you book for someone else

Does anyone know why if I book with Avios they are no longer providing a miles refund for cancellations? They are only offering an E-voucher. How do I actually get the miles credited?

 British reinstated my expired points today after I told them I didn't see their notice, and Corona etc. The email I got today says they are due to expire today?! Logging in to BA doesn't give an expiration date. Anyone have any experience with the lifespan of reinstated points?

if you are part of a household account it won't let you book for someone else

Is there a workaround booking a ticket for someone else if you have a household account?

I think you might be able to edit your existing companions completely.
So while it won't let you add a new one, you can change the name and D.O.B. on an old one
