Some people have pointed out that even using JL's own website to search for awards corresponds to AA inventory as well. I'm not a 100% sure on this because I've heard otherwise, but this is the method I used to book my last JL award redemption using AA miles.

And yes, you have to call to book the awards. Good luck finding what you're looking for!

Thanks so much for your information. Do I assume correctly that in order to search on QF or BA I need to sign up for the respective FF accounts?
