Baggage allowance and seat selection on AA award with Avios?

Does anyone know whether one gets checked baggage allowance and/or seat selection on AA flights to the Caribbean booked with Avios? Grateful for any insight.

Same as regular ticket in same class and travellers status. Economy award is not treated as basic economy for now but i believe delta is already trailblazing the concept...

Thanks! Exactly what I was wondering. So presumably with no status and no CCs we can select seats in the back of the plane but still need to pay for checked bags.

Yes. I have an AA flight LAX-OGG booked with Avios and have selected seats, but no free luggage.

Does anyone know if AA will offer a cash upgrade to Premium Economy for economy tix booked with Avios?

If so, how and when does that happen? Can I call AA after I book via BA? Do it on the day of travel?
