I am looking for a flight from 1/30- 2/3 from LAX to SLC. I found on AA.com  Saver awards available. On BA.com there are no flights available, and when I called BA they also told me there are no flights. Any help would be appreciated!

HUCA.
Also make sure they know to search AA and AS.

Also try calling BA Singapore.

To be clear. I booked a ticket from my account for my brother. I was able to put in HIS AA number. It was NOT grayed out.

If its CX then its probably phantom availability. If its their AA metal its either phantom or a computer delay. You can call AA for this. If its just a computer delay then they'll be able to see it. In my case it was definitely a computer delay, because the same exact flights that were available on BA and not on AA were later showing on AA as well.

AA shows Economy Mile Saaver availability PHL-CLE 12/18, at 7:29 am
BA does not show it.
Is it because its operated by US Airways Express-Air Wisconsin?

I've been noticing that AA sees one seat less than BA shows in F on CX, has anyone else noticed this? Is there any way to get AA to see all seats?
