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.

US airways flights are showing up on BA.

For the date I am looking the USair flights are only showing first class available.

2 hours ago on AA.com they were showing availability. Now on AA.com they are showing no saver availability for the same flights..Did they get booked that fast?

There were multiple flights.

LGA-IAD on April 2nd in the evening.

Also if there is a saver flight showing on AA.com for American any reason I can't book it on BA?

As always, search AA.com and then once found, move over to BA.

Doing that. Any idea why the 930pm flight jfk - dca on apr 2nd is showing up on aa.com but not ba.com?

Guess it doesn't matter though as it won't let me book anything.

NYC-IND = 7,500 avios
PHL-IND = 4,500 avios

NYC-SDF = 7,500 avios
PHL-SDF = 4,500 avios

Oh well, was hoping it would fall into the 4,500 category

Does it make sense that it is cheaper to book 2 one way trips (PHL>YYZ, YYZ>PHL) 27k Avios + $159.45
than book a roundtrip 27k Avios + $161.10? TIA

It's been a few months without a BA-amex bonus. should we anticipate one in the near future?

Usually every 3-4 months they come around.
