Should work that way, yes. The process might have changed since I left BA though.

My ticket had no OAL left but still they refused.
That's odd. Not sure why that would be.

One issue is finding a US TA on Amadeus. Apollo does not work, though they seem tied. I have found agents with Apollo but not Amadeus.
Apollo is tied with Galileo and Worldspan, while Amadeus is on its own. Apollo and Sabre are popular in the US (since they were developed by UA/AA respectively), while Galileo and Amadeus are more common in Europe (developed by European airlines).

For Amadeus in the US, try Omega World Travel in VA.

I believe Expedia UK/IE are in Amadeus. Expedia US are not.
