Never invoked the flat tire rule. Just say can you put me on the next flight
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Thanks. Just brought it up with my wife, and she's even more skeptical than I am. Gonna hold off for now and keep checking to see if more seats open up.

When calling to book (flight on sAAver not on BA) what info do they ask for to identify me?  Just my BA # or my name and other stuff?
(I'm using someone else's  account and I can't answer too many questions.)

Please post a route+date where you find AA saver seats that you can't find on BA.com
LAX-JFK 10/18 9:35pm aa.com is showing 2 seats in business.
I spoke with 2 diff reps at ba and they both said they cannot find avail.
