We obviously don't know "how" they "purchased" the two tickets for us on that flight (cash? "professional courtesy" or airline equivalent? or ?).
Since this was a BA operated flight , BA was required under EC261/2004 to rebook the passenger at the earliest opportunity - also , if this only happened within 14 days of departure, then likely eligible for compensation of EUR300/EUR600 too

Unfortunately for the OP, EC261 only applies to AA for flights departing Europe , whilst for BA the regulation applies both to and from Europe
