Same flight on reward booking on AA site cost 25000 plus $85 fees!!! Now I get the 25000 miles but the fee..ridiculous! I think I am going to keep my 41K Avios left miles for this kind of occasions.
By the way before my booking I asked my friend how much is this ticked worth to him and he said $250 (knowing how much will cost him otherwise). I said "deal"
Win-win! Gotta love our hobby.
how do i use aa miles to book flights on BA? this is one world partner right?

only way is call AA agent?
