Thinking of booking an award with IB avois on BA JFK>LHR>TLV How can I know which aircraft will be on the flight? (I currently see 6:30, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 6:10 from EWR, all PM) My follow up would be if there is a significant difference or an aircraft I should avoid?
TIA

When you hover over the flight info you can click on an arrow that expands to all the flight details and you can see the aircraft type.

Is there a master thread for AA? How do I find the expiration date for my miles? (I think it used to be on home page once you log in, but I don't see it anymore).
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If I request a wheelchair for someone flying NYC-TLV with a connection in Europe,  can I count on the airline to have someone take them on the wheelchair from gate to gate in the connecting city? or is this airline specific?

I am sending an elderly relative who doesn't speak English well, and I don't think they will figure out the connection part on their own.

 if anyone has info on this would appreciate it

Booking issue:

Anerican Airlines: Trying to book: A==>B, B==>C on same day, same airline (i.e. connecting flight, one way ticket) - trying to book as a MultiCity ticket - it prices out MUCH cheaper than a one way ticket, but won't actually complete booking.  The lower price is also visible on Matrix, but not able to book on OTA either.

Any ideas on how to make this happen on the AA site or an OTA?

Maybe they mixed up TG with YK.

Most airports and airlines are very accommodating.
  So you know for sure that they will have a wheel chair waiting for her when she arrives, the best best would be to call up the airline and see if they can make arrangement to have wheelchair waiting for her at the airport from the gate your landing at, or see if you can get ahold of someone at the airport and have them Locate the gate number your arriving at and ask them to have a WC waiting.
   Ive seen multiple times in different Airports people waiting around when you come come off the plane, but I say your best bet is to call head of time and request that as sometimes there's a long walk till you actually get from the plane till your security screening to enter the actual Airport.
 Good luck hope all works out.

I've seen conflicting reporters about carry on when a card holder flies AA basic economy. Do all passengers on the reservation get priority boarding so they can bring a carry on or only the card holder?
(Assuming enforcing the carry on rules goes by boarding group number)
Anyone have experience with this?

If thier is wheelchair assistance on the reservation she should have wheelchair assistance throughout. My guess would be would when you go check the person in at the airport just verify with the check in people at the counter that she will have wheelchair assistance at her stopover as well.
