Not encouraging news.

It is not just the BA Telesales rep who had no idea what a KUP fare was it was also the two AA telesales reps I spoke to.

I've posted the question on the AA Board to see if any of their experts can shed light on the issue.

I could book the BA legs on ba.com and AA legs on aa.com but in addition to the triple miles I was looking for the security of through baggage check-in (I know I have to collect at MIA) and some protection if there were any delays.
