According to BA's web site, the transatlantic is Z, the connecting CW a U. Both are part of the same AA award itinerary.

Cheers.

Thanks. The agent was correct, a reward booking as you noted with F connecting to CW would not offer free seat selection for the CW flight whether booked through AA or BA.

For the purposes of seating, there is no such concept as a "first class itinerary". On any particular flight, you are either booked in First or you are booked in Club World. If you are booked in Club World, the Club World seating policy applies. The cabin you're booked in on other flights is irrelevant, save only in that there may be an indirect effect if your booking class for the Club World sector is affected by the fact that you're booked in First on another sector. But even then, it's the booking class for the Club World sector that may give you free pre-allocation, not the fact that you're in First on another sector.
