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.

the non stops would show up on the website, the stops would have to be booked on the phone as BA charges per segment
They charge 9.k x 2 for flight with stop?

On BA, look for the legs separately.

Needed to change a FFN AAdvantage on a flight I booked on BA. For the way there I changed it on rj.com . That didn't work for the way back (maybe because that ressy had 3 people on it) so I used Qatar.com . Now when I looked up Aa.com it seems like the Qatar changed wasn't implemented. Does that mean it didn't go?

Can someone please tell me if I am going crazy? I could have sworn that we flew BOS-DUB on EI in J last summer for 25,000 Avios. And that's what Dan's chart says (albeit dated). But BA agent insists it is 37,500 Avios. Who's right?
