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.

Can a BA Award on a partner airline such as AA be changed after departure of the first leg. For example if I originally have a round trip and now I want to make it a one way, would I get refunded the mileage difference?

You can issue tickets for any member of your household account

In the t&c they write only family members who reside at the same address but u can try adding someone else and most times it will work

It probably has more to do with AA releasing award availability on that route, than anything else.
