Can you please explain the "married segment" concept? (LOL I had to reread that. at first I thought it wad Madrid typoed).
 
BTW, Quantas shows tons of stuff that I cannot get BA to show it, does that mean BA doesn't have it altogether?
www.lmgtfy.com/?q=married+segment

I know BA.com doesn't show Alaska or LAN properly, need to PUTPAC for those airlines.
What other example do you have though where there's a difference?

www.lmgtfy.com/?q=married+segment
There is a lot to read up on married segments. I just have one question: Can there be married segment from two separate airlines?
What other example do you have though where there's a difference?
Now I see a bunch of flights that BA is showing and are not on Quantas. Example, Aug 15, 20 or 21 EZE-MAD with stop in SCL business class.
On the other hand, Quantas is showing EZE Aug 24 nonstop and 25 stop in SCL, BA nada.
There are definitely discrepancies both ways...

anyone know if nyc to toronto on BA has fuel charges, I'm asking because i am under the impression that there are fuel charges on international flights with BA and although when i go to book it doesn't say anything i'm scared to transfer points from Amex to BA until i confirm one way or another.
Thanks.

Not fuel charges but there will be taxes (I believe around $50 RT)

Not in the Western Hemisphere.
There will be about $60 RT in taxes.

2 seats werent actually available. Seems AA is showing phantom availability.

Also had an issue tonight with AA.com showing CX (paid) when it wasnt available.
