Trying to book a flight form NYC to CLV. for Aug 5. BA is not showing any morning flights. Tried Akron and BA does not fly to that airport. Looking for help in finding a morning flight using BA points.

If you're looking for flights to Cleavland, OH, you have to search for CLE.

Beat me to it, but my answer is arguably more helpful :P

Did you try to search AA.com? If you can't find Saaver availability (coach 12.5k one-way, 25k round-trip) then BA won't allow you to book those flights. If you see 'em on AA.com, post back here and we'll walk you through the booking (BL"N) :)

Thanks for the offer. Nothing leaving in the AM from NYC to CLE. Is it possible that it can still open

Of course. Quite likely in fact.

If I cancel my platinum card will Iose the miles that I have in that account? Should I transfer out the miles before closing the account? The $450 fee is high. Thank you.

If you have no other card connected to the Membership Rewards program, then you will lose all your points. As long as you have an open card, the points will stay active.

You don't get 30 days?

Which would be the best card to keep open

I believe you do, but you gotta ask.
You can also have one of their other reward cards (ie, not MR), and the points will be kept there, and they can possibly transferred back once you get another MR card, but i'm not 100% certain.

THere arent so many MR cards. The standard Premier Gold is a good option since the first year annual fee is waived, so you don't have to make a decision during that time. Meanwhile, you can always open up more cards (I've had multiple Premier Gold cards open at the same time) to keep the clock running.l
