At least you're honest
Ha, didn't know it was a known term. I hear Dr. Laura say it all the time, so I figured I would use it.

I see on AA nonstop flight on dec 8 (motzei shabbos) from LGA to MIA, but it won't show on BA. Only the 2 morning ones (on shabbos) are showing up.

Be sure you're searching LGA and not NYC.  Dunno what to tell you if you're doing that already.

I did, tried NYC, LGA, JFK and EWR didn't come up with anything to MIA. And the rep that was helping me out on the phone was doing the same thing, so she came up with a story.

It works for me (see screenshot), so like I said PEBKAC error I'm afraid to say.

i was once trying to make a ticket for within a few hours of flight and i saw availability on AA Saver. but one of those flights didnt come up on BA. so i called BA and the rep said at first i cant make any reservations avios within 24 hours! but then i said i see some online, so she made up some excuse that its not supposed to be there, and she didnt want to help with the one i couldnt find on BA.
in general she was being rude.

I think there is a misunderstanding here. Like i wrote in my post above "Awesome, thank you.." i meant that now i tried and it worked for me too, just a few hours ago it only showed two flights, and the rep told me that she also only saw those two, but thanks for checking for me.

Wasn't because you were thanking God, just that the premise of what he said was so obviously untrue and it was clear a PEBKAC
Unless that was sarcastic also
