Ok, I've made this work:



I'm getting the same problem, both AY and BA show the booking starting at HEL with ARN-HEL missing although it all shows up on AA. (sorted - see below) - and tweaked in an extra sector on the way back.

OK, so what you need to do is to go onto Finnair live chat, give them the AA record locator and explain you need to select seats on the Finnair flights. They'll give you another PNR you can use to select seats on Finnair, that will also allow you to see the whole itinerary on BA.COM if you want to. I had to reenter my personal details onto the Finnair PNR including BAEC number. Curiously it allowed me to select a seat on the BA HEL->LHR leg which I couldn't on the Qantas PNR (but I could select the babybus and 747 seats).

Ok, I seem to have it sorted thanks to all the help. My Finnair live chat proved fruitless and the agent could only see what I could see, and seemed unable to do anything else. I called AA and got an alternative PNR straight away which works on AY, showed all the legs, and allowed me to book seats. My BA MMB will not accept that new PNR, so I am leaving it with the original one which at least has the BA operated flights and seats.

Same situation with me. So, I now have an AA PNR, a BA PNR and an AY PNR.
@bisonrav have you been able to book a seat on AY808? I've got it to come up under the AY PNR but the page stalls when trying to bring up the seat map.

Add your frequent flyer details to the AY PNR. Then you can select from the 4 available seats... for some reason the BAEC number isn't carried through

Poop - BA176 on 4 Aug has just been switched to a 777 - presumably it could all change again.

Was planning on doing this early August anyway so I've jumped on and booked myself on that same Babybus flight.

Updated the wiki, but you seem to be missing the MIA->LHR section. We're now a quarter of the babybus on declared runners.
