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.

Sorry if this was asked before but if I wanted to fly from NYC to MIA, wouldnt it be smarter to use AA miles? Since I could only book mileSAAver rewards (which would be 12.5K AA for roundtrip) isnt it cheaper than Avios (which would come out to 15K round trip)? What am I missing?

I also thought it was 15k round trip. I tried it this week and it was 15k one way.

Just booked Avios on AA for in-laws, they had to pay for first checked bag.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

I don't know why.  It's 7500 BA each way NYC ----> southern FL or vice versa.  I've booked many tickets.
