So are date changes on these awards pretty much out of the question considering the availability was glitch only and you'll never see it again?

find someone who you trust and book them a regular ticket and add the infant to that. You can offer someone a discounted trip or a free trip. May be worth it.

the brake-down is 700 for BA YQ and taxes 100 for AA tax and about 750 for AA and 200 for BA to add infants so total for infants will be about 950 a lot  less then a RT on Y beside i'm not sure it will work even if i find someone too risky

yes 25k and the difference in taxes
How is it 25k difference? Business is 60k and First is 90k. No?

200 for BA to add infants
Isn't BA 10% of Avios? So should only be 6,000 avios.

6k x2 is 12k and i think there is some tax beside the points CMIIW (12k x1.2=144)

it means that it still needs to go through an office in Texas that manually issue the tickets.
is there a infant on the ticket?

A bit OT, but my wife also just flew US and she was surprised to found out when she boarded the plane that the re-fitted A330's do not have bassinets in business. The new Envoy suite is pretty nice though. 1-2-1 configuration in business almost makes up for the rude flight attendants
