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.

Never too busy for DDF  :P
Correct, but too busy to call BA.

i actually called, and they said that they needed the new (reissued) ticket #. So I call AA, get it, call back BA, and suddenly i need to claim it online. Whatever...should get a response within 14 days.

Booked domestic AA Tix with avios, and it won't let me choose seats. Saw on FT others had same issue. Is it a glitch or a new policy?

Can someone please help me I booked 2 first class (:-\) AA tickets with BA avios points from LGA 2 MIA and then my sister decided to come along but AA is not showing anymore award saver seats on that flight Is there anyway I can get her on my booking even so it's not showing any availability or should I cancel my booking and look on the earlier flight that shows availability? And if the option is cancelling is there any cancellation fee or change fee within the 24 hours?
First of all, please try to use proper punctuation and correct your spell check errors when asking questions. It makes it really annoying to read and decipher your question.
Regarding your question, there's no real way to open award space on the flight you want. Your options are either to wait and see it award space opens some time between now and your flight or just cancel and rebook onto the earlier flight if it has availability. There's no fee to cancel within 24hrs of booking, after that, you'll just lose the $5.60 tax per ticket as long as you're not within 24hrs of the flight.

If you won't make the effort to actually type out your question in a coherent and grammatically correct manner, why should anyone make the effort to answer your question?

sorry but i think this forum was not just open for people who knows how to speak and to write and to be grammatically correct and if i would ever have a piece of info that might be helpful for you you gladly accept it even tho it's not grammatically correct, as i see you and some other guys like you with this type of attitude i could understand that the מחלוקה by דור הפלגה was about grammatically correct

For all anyone cares write in Spanish, but you won't get your help, so as @mmgfarb so nicely said, if you want help, write in English. Proper English.

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry at this BS. Honestly, the entitlement that many people have here is, IMO, one of the reasons why DDF is dying.
