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.

Tried and I couldn’t do that. Finnair keeps saying:
The booking reference you entered is not valid. Make sure you are entering a Finnair booking reference.

Tried using both my BA and AA reference number. I did just book the tickets two hours ago (if that makes a difference).

Use the BA number for AY or RJ.

I actually asked AA on twitter, and they said I can just show my credit card at check-in
(Though I then needed to cancel the award flight, so I never actually tried it)
