I have had this before I do not think there is any way though I would be happy if I was wrong.

you an call the BA desk in other locations that it is open -- like thailand, china etc..

but interesting note on these other locations; i called the US 800 number and they gave me one quote and i called an international location and they gave me a much higher rate.

Been discussed multiple times.
You can only use the CS of the country where the BA acct is registered AT THE TIME OF BOOKING, so if u already have a reservation changing your address won't (officially) help.

Taxes are different based on which country the acct is registered. It appears US is always the cheapest.

You can only change the address once every 6 months.

you might want to try logging in (via proxy) from an IP located west of midnight. has helped me before on award bookings on other airlines.
