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.

I have not used Avios in a long time.  Is it better to book American flights directly with Amex MR points or to transfer to Avios and book through British Airways?  It seems as if it will be the same amount of points, but I would like the ability to cancel.
Depends on how much the flights cost. But with BA you can cancel up to 24 hours before your flight and just lose the taxes.

That's what I'm asking, can I cancel by booking it any other way, or is BA the only option?  Don't think I'm getting a great value either way.  Just want to be able to cancel.

For that cheap ba would be your best option.
