Purchasing on BA for Parents

Hello all-

I am looking at purchasing round trip tickets for my parents from India to US.
Can I purchase them from my BA account and enter their details as passengers? The site seems to be letting me use my miles towards some decent credit on the ticket purchase(and even letting me choose their seats). I am worried that it will let me do this now and cause issues to my parents when they go to board the flight!

Yeah its fine to purchase flights for other people!

Just make sure you look out fir the part where it asks who is paying and select "the person paying is not travelling" thisis so BA know its a third party payment and will ensure there are no issues.
