You can try to see if a phone agent will unblock those seats, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Besides the BA liason (which might take time that you don't have right now, given your flights are on Wednesday), AA can definitely open up award space on its own flights. I would ask to be transferred to a supervisor right away and explain the situation. The problem is that most AA flights are sold out in J on Wednesday. There are 2 J seats on RDU-LHR (connecting to BA), but that would transform your trip from a one-stop journey to a three-stop journey (e.g., DTW-CLT/ORD/PHL-RDU-LHR-EDI).
