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 find BA not offering much seats for award travel
Nothing to do with BA. It's AA.
Also, I have a few flights booked for me and friends with avios. Really depends when you are looking for and when you try to book
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

My friends that have BA point always had a harder time booking tickets with award points. I know you said it is AA

Has anyone ever flown with an infant (on AA) using avios points? When I try to book online, it wants to charge me 10% of the avios for the infant, but since it is domestic USA, I will be flying on AA. Since AA does not charge for infants, do I need to pay BA?

Don't book the infant.
Call AA to add or do it at the airport.
