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.

Is there a workaround booking a ticket for someone else if you have a household account?
I think you might be able to edit your existing companions completely.
So while it won't let you add a new one, you can change the name and D.O.B. on an old one

Sorry I'm sure this has been asked many times but I can't seem to find it.
Is there any reason I would want to book a first class flight directly through AA against through BA where I can transfer from Chase

I'm not seeing any availability when trying to book a flight on AA with Avios on BA website. Any suggestions?
