I called the India call center and got a very competent agent. He saw the exact same availability on American that I saw using the British Airways EC booking tool. He was able to book me from ORD to LHR roundtrip for 40,000 miles and no YQ. The tax was the exact same as came up in ITA Matrix. As soon as I got off the phone with him I found the booking on He also informed me that I was entitled to one free date change (changes after that 100 dirham) and free cancellation. Altogether a surprisingly pleasant experience.
