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.

I also thought it was 15k round trip. I tried it this week and it was 15k one way.
I don't know why.  It's 7500 BA each way NYC ----> southern FL or vice versa.  I've booked many tickets.
Yitz, maybe you were looking at business class seats.  They are indeed 15,000 one way.
