Anyone with an upcoming business/first flight want to try and see if this works with an infant coach ticket attached?

I'm willing to put in $100 to start a pot to pay the volunteer in case the worst case scenario happens and they catch on and insist on you paying 10% of the full business/first fare at the gate.  Anyone want to contribute or volunteer?  You could save yourself a small fortune!
Is the offer still on?
I actually have a few flights coming up with an infant but 5 are with ba  :) But I have 2 itineraries with a different airlines so I'm up to try it

Hey everyone, I have two one ways from MEL-LAX for me and my wife on Qantas using AA miles and qantas wants $488 for our 7 month old (I paid $85 on Virgin Australia a month ago!). I wish I had read this thread before booking. Doea wnyone have any idea how do get this lowered? I asked an AA rep as well as a Qantas rep to give the breaks down and it is $114 for the base fare and $374 in taxes and fees (fuel surcharge). If any one has any ideas please let me know.

What's the best way to get an infant in "F" across the pond in the new AA 777?

So far the options are: 66000 BA + $457.90

                                     62500 AA + $514

Any other ideas?

I assume you just wanna pay the 10% fee or whatever it is?
