Trying to use avios to book AA flight short notice (with in the next week 12/31 or 1/1) (short haul domestic BDL/LGA/JFK to ORD) - but noticing that there is no availability even though AA is showing it to be wide open for award redemption at 12.5K AA miles or less?

Has anyone seen this before as a close out policy prior of booking AA flights with avious? Any ideas if calling BA would work as opposed to using the online portal or what ticket class it has to be on AA to book for BA - usually for domestic US it is priced 12.5K or below.

I have a feeling dan spoke about this but cant find the post...

Call BA. Website doesn't always show what's actually available.
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

Is the AA price of ~12.5k “web special” or regular?
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
