Ba would be significantly less
Not if it's not off-peak.
Besides taxes are more IINM.
But yes generally cheaper. But I've had real struggles booking (online) RJ shorthauls on BA as of late.

BA charges all taxes and fees.
AA fees are in the 50 PP range vs BA's 200 PP.
Qantas is cheaper in milage at 14k but same as ba in fees.
AA wins!
Always praying for delayed baggage.

At 5'20" (# @Something Fishy ) he can barely fly J. There has been so much phantom availability that I'm inclined to just leave it. He's never flown on a 747 and if I can get him an upper deck seat that would just be nice. He's flown more J products than me.

Ba would be significantly less

I am aware, but BA would have been 12K + $150 per pax, and Qantas 14K + $150, at which point it would be far less worthwhile.  The AA is in my AA account, whereas I'd have to  also sacrifice flexible points to fill my BA or QF.
