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.

Transferring points from AMEX, Chase, or Starwood will extend the life of all of your points for 36 months.

Does anyone here have a confirmed report of shopping at the ba store keeping your avois alive, meaning extending the expiration?
Easiest way to extend life of Avios points?
Transferring points from AMEX, Chase, or Starwood will extend the life of all of your points for 36 months.
if what I mention works, the that's far by the easiest way to extend your avio' s.
 Once the points post on my account I'm going to call up ba and see if it really extended my avios or look at my expiration date for my Avios.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Later flights will likely not take off due to the weather, so if you want to go, take the earlier flight.  If you want to cancel, I think you'll be able to without penalty.
