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?
Ask for a long sell?

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?
Shows for me.

If aa is showing that they have a flight but it's operated through one of there partner airlines, say American Eagle, can that flight got still be booked with Avios?

Yes, it's been a problem with AA. Long sell won't help.

I've had success waiting a little.

Why is the last flight JFK > LAX 1/29 & LAX > JFK 2/5 at 14:00?
Nothing later?
Or am I doing something wrong?

Check on AA.com for the list of flights available on SAAver awards.  That should be what's available on BA.com.  When there are too many on the page, they may not show up on BA.com.  You can call BA to book it.  Be sure to get the phone booking fee waved because it wasn't available on line.

I am trying to book a standard award ticket for an infant under 2 yrs old. When I try entering passenger info I receive an error message stating that child must be between 2 - 11 years old in order to reserve such a seat. Anyone have any experience booking a regular seat with points for a child under 2 on BA?
