Flight + Car Bonus Avios Question

Hi all

I'm just trying to figure out if I can have my cake and eat it with a flight & car booking I'm making.

I'm only BA Blue but I have AA EXP status so I'm particularly keen on having my AA status in my reservation to make sure I can select seats when I book. At the same time, however, I'd quite like to earn the extra Avios you get for booking such a package (yes, I'm that greedy ). Do these avios post some short period after booking or, as I strongly suspect, do they only post after the trip (meaning I have to keep my BAEC number in the reservation to get the bonus Avios)?

TIA

Use your AA number when booking. Select seats for free, then call to change to your BAEC number. Then show your AA card for lounge access.

Don't you have to book with the BAEC account to qualify for the bonus?
