$75 fee:

-21+ days prior to departure is based on the departing city time zone, not the booking city time zone.

EDIT: I managed to call in and have them waive the fee when it was within 21 days in departing city time zone but not by booking city time zone

UPDATE: AA has removed all close-in fees

Will ba book a mileage flight that shows up only on Aa mileage and if yes, if any level on Aa will fine for them to give it?

BA can only book AA saver flights. Their lowest tier.

If you are flying a paid ticket it's usually Miles + cash.

Yes, UK taxes. It's slightly cheaper if you don't fly on BA.

Question, i have a little bit of a funky idea, wondering if this would work. I have 2 vouchers of buy one and get the next two for $99 that expire end of 2015. I would really like to use these in January 2016. What i was thinking is to buy the tickets for 2015, then upgrade it to a higher class with Points and cash, and then call up to switch the dates on the tickets. Anyone ever hear of something like this? Think it would work?

I know that AA doesn't display JAL availability, you search BA and then have to call and have AA book--so the BA calendar goes more than 11 months out--even when calling in AA, can you give them a flight date more than 11 months out?
