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.

He can transfer from his MR/UR/SPG account into your Avios account.

You could combine both of your accounts by opening a household account.

(Side note: the only problem with a household account is that you can't buy a ticket for anyone else beside whoever is on the combined account also max. 5 PPl allowed.

You could always unlink it.)

Chase doesn't expedite points (unlike AmEx) unless it's after the statement closed.

So I think he has just this option

Beside the fact that is it says there are 2 seats left it doesn't mean that.

I had it a few times that it said on ba only x seats left and after I booked it went up.
