Using Avios on AA...

Why is it when I do a search on the AA website, there is availability, but that is not reflected when I try to book an identical route using Avios?

If you are looking on BA.com for AA flights, they typically will not show you anything but BA flights if there's any way they can get you there on their own metal.

If you're booking a paid flight, you have to request to look at partners, but you probably won't be given this option if BA can fill your needs on BA metal.

If you're booking an award, same caveat. What I do is check on AA.com for availability and then, with the flight number in hand, call BA. Remember, it has to be a MileSaver award or BA won't be able to book it.

Hope this helps.

I even think it's mostly correct.
