Hey Kid, there's something wrong with your keyboard. :) You can check availability on AA.com.

AA.com shows phantom AB availability. It is a known issue.
Use QF.

You know it's no fun calling them....

If there are a lot of flight avail on that date, thats why it does not show up.

He can try entering EWR instead og NYC.

As I mentioned before in this thread that BA only shows the first numerous flights available and they neglect to show later ones even though they are truly available as a saver award flight from AA. Note that some BA reps are clueless and first think that if it doesn't show up on their side that it must not be available. Demand to speak to a supervisor and before you know it they'll come back saying that you're right and it is available. Before calling them get from the AA site the exact flight info.
