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.

Works for me.
Was the ticket booked out of your own account? Was the BA number in the FF field when booking?

I believe the issue is from leaving the ffn blank on ba. Although it may have to do with booking out of another person's account.
Although i haven't recently tried filling it in with the passengers ba# when booking from another account. I always book out of my own account.
Call AA to add your ffn

If you're a BA cc holder, there's a code for getting a discount on paid BA airfare.  [OFFER ???]
I don't remember the code and I don't know if it works on a hotel booked through their site.
