Flying to AMS from ORD.... who do i book with AA or BA?
 
I am flying in Oct to AMS from ORD. I would like any suggestions on what company to book with.

My flight from ORD is ORD>DFW>AMS

flight back is: AMS>LHR>ORD

I am One World Emerald with Iberia.

Does it make a difference? What do you suggest in terms of be increasing my risk of upgrading to business via AUP/POUG or upon checkin?

Thanks much!!

American Airlines' change policies are better than British Airways'.
However, if you book through BA, you would have the opportunity to upgrade your flights with POUG or AUP for the return leg with BA.
For your flight from ORD, if you're seeking for a AA paid upgrade, it's better that you purchase your ticket with AA.

These were what came to my mind.

There is a strong argument for going with the cheapest. If they are botht he same-ish, then the fastest/best timed. For all the nitpicking we can do about this, both options are on reasonable airlines with good safety and comfort. If either service is an A350 then that's a small advantage, it is a good aircraft, and 787 if in WTP is fine too, in my view.

Because you would presumably be booking as one ticket, you would be reducing your chances of a POUG on BA by dint of the AMS leg, this tends to prevent the computers from calculating the POUG. You would have a high chance of an AUP regardless of this however. At the moment POUGs seem to be a high chance, though obviously compare fares to see if it would be better to book in business class from the outset. But to answer your question on the BA side you cannot count on a POUG to AMS, you would be more likely if booked to LHR, but that poses numerous other issues. For AUP then any BA routing would do.

To the OP: Are you considering different flights? Or the same flights but booked on either a BA or AA code?

It wasn’t quite clear to me.
