How to find AA award space on BA.com

This morning I asked “Is BA unable to see American Airlines award space?”  I had found an AA saver award that I wanted to book.  And I knew space was available.  Iberia.com and Qantas.com could see the space.  But I wanted to book with British Airways Avios, and BA.com could not see the award space.  A telephone agent couldn’t see the award space either even though she checked two different systems.  Her advice was to…

Here is Iberia’s American Airlines award chart…

From 11K RT on American: A sweet spot for North American flight redemptions

In light of the new Chase Iberia Visa Signature that came out last week, a reader asked about 11,000 Avios round-trip redemptions on American Airlines. I was surprised by the question because at the time I didn’t know what he was talking about. Somehow, a great sweet spot for North American flight redemptions had been hiding under my nose undetected. I’ve often said that it’s hard to maintain an encyclopedic knowledge of all of the domestic and…
