Problems booking KUP fare on AA with BA telesales

Apologies for the cross posting but I thought the outcome of this might be useful to those who like me very rarely venture anywhere other than the BA Board.

I have tried to search for answers to this but I think the search engine has issues with searches of less than 4 characters.

on aa.com I priced up the following itinerary:-

BA209 LHR - MIA on 03 March 2007 @ 13:30 - Fare Basis DLAPGB
AA447 MIA - LAS on 03 March 2007 @ 21:50 - Fare Basis KUPP26T
AA1819 MIA - LAS on 08 March 2007 @ 07:45 - Fare Basis KUPP26T
BA206 MIA-LHR on 08 March 2007 @ 17:05 - Fare Basis DLAPGB

Average Fare Per Person - £ 3585.00
Tax & Charges £ 83.00
Total Price £ 3668.00
This gives me Business Class on the BA legs and First on AA.

For once booking this with BA prices out cheaper as the LHR-MIA legs are available in I class. I assume this is because of selective regional fare bucket availability.

The problem I have when booking it with BA is the MIA-LAS-MIA legs do not seem to auto upgrade to First. Looking at the PNR on aa.com it shows Cabin/Booking Class as Economy/K. The seat map is also for the economy cabin.

I've called AA twice and spoken to people who had no idea what a KUP fare was and insisted that K class was economy.

The simple answer is to book on aa.com but that is £300 more than BA are quoting and also loses me the double miles bonus for using my BA AMEX.

I am beginning to think that KUP fares can only be booked by AA? Is this correct or should BA be able to book them?

Yes... I had similar problems in March/April this past year. I wanted YUP fare for MCO-LAX, SNA-DFW-IAH. I thought that booking it through BA would give me the extra BA Amex PP miles, BUT the BA agent could not be persuaded that YUP fares (economy fares booking straight into First) existed - think she thought that I was a nut case (probably true!). I gave up and booked on aa.com....

Posted my experience here and other posters seemed to have had exactly the same experience.... annoying! But if BA doesn't want our money...

I had the same problem trying to book LGW-MCO-MIA-SFO-MIA-MCO-LGW as I couldn't find anyone that understood KUP fares. In the end I booked the AA and BA flights separately and swallowed the extra cost and loss of Amex BA miles

Not encouraging news.

It is not just the BA Telesales rep who had no idea what a KUP fare was it was also the two AA telesales reps I spoke to.

I've posted the question on the AA Board to see if any of their experts can shed light on the issue.

I could book the BA legs on ba.com and AA legs on aa.com but in addition to the triple miles I was looking for the security of through baggage check-in (I know I have to collect at MIA) and some protection if there were any delays.

What it *might* if being really pedantic is that I think there is a *chance* they can downgrade people on KUP fares to Coach if there were over-selling issues, etc on the day. Certainly would be those folk before the full fare F people. I wouldn't be surprised if the AA folk say someone along these lines.

I think in the fare rules there is even a mention of waitlisting for First class if the passenger doesn't want to travel in Coach or something along those lines.

As for EC credit, I think it is a sticky area and I think as it books into First class why you get the appropriate credit.

Very confusing I know.

I think BA want to be able to sell you a ticket 100% guaranteed to always keep you in First class on the AA connecting flight/codeshare etc.

I wouldn't count on the through baggage - checked in at MIA (what a zoo!) for flight to MCO and then LGW and we were told our bags were checked through to LGW. Being a trusting soul I checked and one bag came off at MCO and one was checked through to LGW. The very unfriendly AA staff at MCO said that sometimes it goes through and sometimes it doesn't and BTW it's not their problem anyway

Not done it onwards at MCO or MIA however done it A LOT from DFW onwards to LAS on separate tickets with AA from a BA flight before they noticed Flyclub was doing it for years, noticed it worked rather well then thought "Hey lets make it a codeshare anyway at DFW to LAS"

Gaza, you say BA quoted a different fare, £300 cheaper than AA.com. Could it be that BA res has no access or perhaps failed to access KUPP26T fares and are constructing its through fare from different, non upgradeable K class fares?

The reason the fare is cheaper is on aa.com the outbound leg from LHR to MIA is booking in to D rather than I. It seems that reginal fare buckets are working against me on this occasions.

One AA rep I spoke to did say the fare basis was KQ???? rather than KUPP26T. It could well be the case that KUPP26T fares can only be booked by AA.

You can through-check your bags anyway - we did SNA-DFW-IAH (on AA YUP ticket) and IAH-LGW (BA MFU ticket). The bags were checked all the way from SNA-LGW. I THINK that they made it... embarrassingly they didn't come out quickly from our flight, so we assumed they hadn't made it. We reported them as missing, were told that they would be in the next day and delivered to our home address... however, they were delievered to our home later that same night (so I assume that we were just being pesimistic and they HAD arrived on our flight....).

The main drawback - apart from the extra BA Amex miles - may be you not making your connect.... this is what worried me. If we didn't get to IAH in time for our IAH-LGW flight, what would BA have done...? Would they have nice and put us on the next available flight in Club... who knows.

If the fare basis begins KQ, then it would definitely seem to be of the non-upgradeable K variety. There are so many different sub fares it can be mind boggling at times.

Expedia may be able to sell KUP's. It certainly offered YUP's in the past but even though, a mixed class through booking may prove too hot for it to handle.

Thanks G. Your suggestion to try Expedia helped point me and BA in the right direction.

I went on to Expedia and used the option to build the itinerary manually. It can back in the way I wnated. I then looked at the fare rules:-

My attention was drawn to the "Booking Code" line highlighted above. It showed "P" rather than "K". I made a quick call back to BA Telesales and asked them to change the booking class from "K" to "P". He confirmed the fare basis had changed from KAOZT to KUPP26T.

I them went in to www.checkmytrip.com and saw the AA flights now confirmed in F.

This could be worth adding to the sticky.

Yes you did well there as this bit is quite mis-leading:

Code:
INDUSTRY FARE TYPE -  ER - ECONOMY RESTRICTED
Before there was a "FIRST CLASS RESTRICTED" option on AA.com, choosing Economy unrestricted was the only way to pick up on the YUP fares (as they were a few years ago).

It's a technicality, that would not normally come into play, unless there is an irregular operations situation and the PAX requests to be accommodated in F cabin on another carrier, in which case UA would be in a position to argue that the PAX has purchased an economy fare ...

My attention was drawn to the "Booking Code" line highlighted above. It showed "P" rather than "K". I made a quick call back to BA Telesales and asked them to change the booking class from "K" to "P". He confirmed the fare basis had changed from KAOZT to KUPP26T.

I them went in to www.checkmytrip.com and saw the AA flights now confirmed in F.

This could be worth adding to the sticky.
